NEX 6, Sony 10-18 and manual focus assist
Dec 26, 2012

If anyone has the NEX 6 with the 10-18 lens can you tell me if the MF assist magnification kicks in when you turn the focus ring (with the camera set to MF)? This is the first time I've even tried MF assist with the 10-18 and noticed that it doesn't seem to activate when I turn the focus ring. It works as expected with my Sony 18-55 but it doesn't work with the 10-18.

Even if you're using another NEX model with the 10-18 I'd appreciate it if anyone can verify manual focus and MF assist with the 10-18.

Edit -- After testing a little bit more I don't think it's the MF assist but rather the manual focus altogether.  Autofocus is fine but the lens doesn't manual focus.  If anyone can think of something obvious and simple that I'm overlooking then please let me know (it wouldn't be the first time ).
