    With a f4 minimum aperture, you'll have trouble with autofocus using a
    teleconverter. You could try manual focusing, but the viewfinder will
    probably be pretty dim. Additionally, there is always image degradation
    when using a teleconverter, so unless you start with *really* good glass,
    the results are not very good.

    Personally, with the 1.5x aspect ratio factor of the D100, I don't see much
    need for one to start with... you are already at 450mm on your long (300mm)
    end.

    Nikon makes 2 TC that will work TC14E and TC20E
    Kenko makes two 300pro or something like that, they
    work fine with "G" lenses on the S2, same as D100..

    The 70-300mm is a crap enough lens already without reducing the quality &
    speed via a teleconverter.
