Be sure to update the FT-1 firmware for use with the V3.
3 months ago

I got the V3 yesterday hoping to use it with my FX lenses.I was trying out different camera/lens combinations, 600, 300, 70-200. There was a whole lot of failure to focus in situations where I first focused on a subject at 20 feet, then moved to a subject at 100 feet. There was a complete failure to detect the different subject distance. Nothing.

I was obviously very disappointed with this, as using the long lenses was the reason I was trying the V3. Trying to figure out whether there was a problem with the camera, or if I had not set the camera up correctly somehow, it finally occured to me to check the camera firmware. I  happened to notice there was also a firmware update for the FT-1 adapter for the V3. Very simple procedure, and that seems to have fixed it. I will go to a bird nesting site in the morning to test it out. I will let you know the results.
