    I pre ordered the 70-200mm, how do these teleconverters work? Do you lose light or does f/2.8 stay f/2.8?

    Yes, you will lose 2-stops of light with the 2x teleconverter and 1-stop of light with the 1.4x teleconverter

    when using the teleconverter and you loose the stops....does the camera know that ?

    ie does the aperture stop at 5.6 on the camera and go no further ?

    Yes, the camera will stop down automatically for you Steve limiting your aperture range accordingly.

    I was about to buy one of the converters, when I flew up to the UK a couple of weeks ago, then I found out it was for an A mount only.
    I have no idea , what would happen, having to mount an E to A adapter to fit the converter,to the A7 II.
    Then add an A to E adapter to the converter to use the E mount lenses ???
    The people in the shop, had no idea either, so I thanked them for their time, and left.
    Cheers
