Yes. That converter is not even among the currently sold manual teleconverters. The converters that work with autofocus lenses are the TC-14E II, TC-17E II and TC-20E II. You can also find versions without the "II" that also work, but they must have the E because those are the autofocus teleconverters. Some do not work with all lenses.

Cheers,
Eric
