Setting focal length with tele-converter

I have a KX and I am going to try a 200mm tele lens with a 2X converter. When powering up the camera what focal length should be chosen?

400mm. Remember also that your aperture doubles. That is, if your widest is f6 (just an example) a 2x converter will change that to f12.
