I have just purchased a Tamron x2 teleconverter to use with my Tamron 70-300mm lens on my Sony a58. I don't seem to be able to take pictures in 'auto' mode. I am not a very accomplished photographer and do rely heavily on auto settings at the moment. Is this not an option with a teleconverter or is there a way to fix the problem?


+1 on all of the above answers, and as an extra point, [depending on how/what you shoot] bear in mind the atmospheric refraction one incurs by increasing the focal length with a TC. The 'seeing' may become an issue compounded by the addition of a TC.
