I own the D7000 and have been thinking about getting a D7100 or D610. While reading the specs for the D7100 on Adorama, I read the following statement.

"The central cross-type sensor works all the way down to f/8, a huge advantage when using compatible teleconverters."

Excuse my lack of knowledge, but I am confused at this statement. I did not know that AF sensors only worked at certain f-stops. I have not noticed any issues at any f-stops on my D7000.

I am hoping one of knowledgeable Nikonian members can help me understand what this means. Thanks.
