I have a 60-300 mm Tokina manual zoom lens that I want to use at a minor league baseball game tonight. When I attach it to my K5 it asks for the focal length? What setting do I use? 60? 300?

300mm

I would also like to experiment with a 2x extender. What setting would I use with the Tokina?

600mm
