    Hi,

    I'm looking to acquire the 2x TC from Sony (SAL-20TC). On their compatibility list for lenses, they mention their G series as well as some lenses from Minolta.

    What I need to know if it will also be compatible with some of the Sigma lenses, or if they don't mention them just because it's a third party manufacturer.

    Anyone has had any experience with this?

    Thanks.

    It's only compatible with the G lenses. I'd think you'd be better off buying a third-party option. But if you have the cash...

    You could also get the sigma version of the 2x tele-converter.

    The thing is that I'd probably be able to get one for 5 times less the retail price. New.

    But if it's only compatible with the G lenses, I don't think it's worth it.

    Same problem there. They have a list of compatible lenses. But what about the others, would they mount but not have functional AF or something like that?
