Wide Conversion in menu

Hi everyone. I just got a Century .6 wide converter. The instructions say to set the Wide conversion in the menu to "on". What does this do? They also say to turn on auto focus and the macro function. Why does macro have to be turned on too? Thanks for all your help and advice!

From what I understand, the wide function in the menu switches the chromatic aberation correction for Sony's wide angle adapter. Not sure how it works with the 3rd party adapters. The macro is necessary to focus with that adapter. That's how it works. Other "zoom through" type adapters don't operate this way.
