Focal length with a teleconverter

Just checking. If I am using a 2x teleconverter with a 50mm A lens, it asks for focal length. I would input 100 at this point, correct?

Thank you

Yes, 100mm.

itg is correct. Here's how it works. Shake reduction is different depending on focal length, there is more correction the longer the focal length. Since you have 50mm lens and a 2X TC, you are essentially working with a 100mm lens, and you will need SR to match. If you were using a 1.4 TC you would dial in 70, and if you are lucky enough to own the Pentax 1.7 TC you would dial in 85.
