Disturbing post 1.07 AF Micro Adjust Results
Feb 10, 2013

I had not done any AF Micro adjusting since before 1.04. But based on another post I decided to do it again.

* The first thing I noticed was that as others have reported was that across the board the lenses tested so far require less adjustment

* Several times the option to change the amount of adjustment setting was grayed out, turning  AF Micro Adjust off then on returned it to normal.

* After the adjustment switching between the Sigma lenses 18-250 and the 70-200 on the A77 thinks are the same lens. This is not good at all. I don't recall seeing this in prior firmware versions. The odd part it the camera says I have adjusted 3 lenses which is exactly correct. My other Sigma lens (50-500) is recognized as expected.

* As I expected my matched 2X TC does require a different adjustment, the 70-200 has an adjustment of 0 but the combination with the TC the adjustment is +6 but this combination is not seen as a different lens.
