FT1 Adapter question for techies
Aug 10, 2012

Is there some real reason (technical) that the FT1 could not be made to use continuous focus or use other AF points besides the center? If the answer is no, could it be done with firmware?

If it's just crippled to not steal sales from the DSLR line it is very annoying. I knew it was limited before I bought it but the continuous focus and continuous shot capability using the native lenses is really great and having more reach would open up the usefulness for birding tremendously. (A longer native lens would be another alternative.)

Would be nice if they would allow the shot review to be disabled too of course as everyone here knows already. Pretty disappointed that this wasn't in the new firmware.
