A7 III continuous autofocus big issue in video mode. (Aps-c lenses)

As I was playing around with my brand new A7 III and feeling the beautiful tingling sensation generated by the HYPE I notice this:

When using the Continuos autofocus on video mode and tracking from a foreground object to a background object the lens keeps breathing and shaking making the footage unusable. I was super happy with the smoothness and performance that the A6500 always gave me.

I have only noticed this using Aps-c lenses and I made sure that all the focus setting where exactly the same as what I have on my A6500.

I updated the video to illustrate the problem and hopefully find some answers from you guys, have you experience the same? Is it only happening on Aps-c lenses?

I used the Sony 35 1.8 in both cameras.



Thanks in advance.
