NEX focusing help needed
Mar 1, 2013

I have NEX-7 for 14 months now and like it a lot.

One thing though aggravates me quite a bit. I use Flexible Spot and change focus points a lot. However to change focus point I need to press a key first (default: the lower function button). Then I change the point and press shutter and camera locks and takes a picture. When back to operation it is now in normal mode and I need to press the button again to go to focus settings and select another point.

I have NEX-5 and it stays in Focus Settings between pictures. I had some time with NEX-6 - same thing - go to focus point selection and camera stays there.

Do you know if I need some particular setting on NEX-7 changed so camera stays in focus settings between frames?

Help much appreciated. I cannot buy beer but will vote the one with the right answer.
