in continuous AF mode the noise of the AF is too loud to use the internal mic and even an external one may pick up the sound.

if you want to use this lens/camera combo, you can pick up a grip with a rail rod system, a follow focus unit and maybe a whip, all for about $200-250. That would let you follow focus in MF mode nearly silently so you could still use the internal mic.

I ask this as the 85mm f1.4 za has a very noisy motor
if there is no solution,then I must switch to manual focusing
but how can the video be in sharp focus all the time ?
