Bad studio experience
5

Just finished a studio shoot and I am quite frustrated: I was using my Nikon Z7+ 85mm 1.8g or 24-70 4 S.

With both lenses, the camera was hunting a LOT, very often more than 5 seconds, often did not find a focus at all. This is even more frustrating as my Canon 7d was able to find focus with not much effort.

I had Low light AF turned on, d8 (apply settings to live view) turned off, shooting in AF-S.   The studio was not particularly dark and Nikon says that with low light AF the camera should be able to focus down to -4EV. I think I also noted a difference in performance when I had a flash trigger mounted on the camera, but not by much. I need to update to the most recent firmware..

What is your experience?
