Moved to the right section - SLR lens area. More likely to get a response

You need to focus the lens to infinity first, then let the adapter do the AF work.

Note that using the AF 1.7x TC on an autofocus lens disables the lens autofocus.

you will need to adjust the lens focus to be close to correct, and then let the AF TC do the rest.
