All, I have a very quick ( and possibly silly) question.

I have just had an opportunity to finally pair a 50-140 with the 1.4tc and I've noticed that when the lens is at f2.8 it sill says 2.8 on the camera display - is this normal?

On my 70-300 it accounts for the TC and adjusts the f-stop accordingly and it also worked like this on my old Canon gear.

Is this just a quirk of the 50-140mm or is there something not quite right?

Everything works as I'd expect it to so there are no issues there, it just seems a little odd.

I'd think a quirk; I see this sometimes when using a TC amongst my various bodies.  I pay it no attention so long as the exposures come out correct.

You might want to ensure the firmware is up to date on all devices including the TC.
