Minolta 300mm 2.8 HS AF with 2x teleconverter

I would like to use Minolta 300mm with my Kenko 2x teleconverter but AF is not working. I have A57 body. This lens with 2x teleconverter has max 5.6 aperture so it should be able to AF, right?

Is the problem in A57 AF system or Kenko 2x or am I just hoping too much?
