...I'm curious as to how well large tele lenses do on the adapter. 300+ I'm thinking. I am going to Yellowstone next month and think a zoom larger than my SEL 55210 might be nice for distant wildlife.



Yes. I just recently got a Rokkor 300 and its nice but big. Also a Tokina 400 that has a sticky aperture, but otherwise also produces nice pictures. For Yellowstone an xx-400 would be nice, but a legacy 300/400 would be a good complement to the 55210. 2 other thoughts:
- the 300 with 1.5 crop factor is quite a good magnification lens, so a 70-300 or 100-300 would work 
- some of the wildlife in Yellowstone can get pretty close so the 55-200 might find some use at the lower end!
