Re: How well does Sony a6300 work with Canon L glass 70-200 IS specifically?

So I finally have had the chance to play with the camera for a bit and attached my 70-200 2.8 IS (think it's the I as it's about 8 years old) and the auto focus did not work fully extended.

I have the converter which works with my other canon lenses and the 70-200 works up until around 100mm or a little more but at 200 or near it just focuses non stop in and out and can't lock.

Maybe this is a setting error on my part or possibly the lens range is too great for this converter? It seems to work pretty well with my other lenses.

I mainly was hoping this would work at 200mm though as I could take advantage of the extra focal length from the crop sensor whereas my other Canon's are full frame (5D M3 and 6D). Was hoping it would be a nice little telephoto boost option.

It does seem to focus just fine in Manual at 200mm though.
