Also light doesn't double.

It concentrates the amount of light leaving the lens that effectively gives twice as much light striking the sensor. The 0.71x factor of the adapter is what causes this doubling [log(0.71^2)/log(2) = -0.99]. It's the same reason most companies make 1.4x teleconverters (0.97 stop loss) instead of 1.5x (1.17 stop loss) teleconverters.
