85mm 1.4 GM not recognizable

so i saw that 85mm gm i ordered have gotten

here at local distribution center this morning,

I had to take a day off and try this bad boy 😆


I opened the box and put the lens on my a7rii

it made a weird sheeshing sound

it goes shshshshsh beep!

not that loud, so i didn't mind it.

But the real problem is that my A7rii does not

recognize the lens...

I checked my pins on both body ans the lens

they seem fine, I tried other lenses and they work

In the menu, under Version, It only has information

of the camera body. Which means it's not recognizing the lens.

has any of you had the same problem?

maybe a solution? I'm dying here 😔😭

I called sony support, they recommended me to send the lens back.. but she seemed like she had no idea about the camera..

Any tips will be greatly appreciated
