Eye Af Test FW 3.01 -- Not Happy and Not Working Well -- Is it me or.....
4

did Sony bugger something up?

I blindly upgraded the FW in my 2 A7r3''s and then was disappointed.  Why? After reading Lloyd Chambers blog about Sony ruining its eye-AF for the A7r3 I just did a rough test and sadly, after duplicating a few times I cannot now trust them to do Eye-Af.  Here is one obvious result:

Eye-AF, Wide Area:

Eye-AF, Wide Area - (also occurs w/Flexible Spot)

Eye-Sf OFF -- Flexible spot focused directly on the eye:

Tomorrow I can try this on a few other lenses to further confirm but havr sny of you seen this behaviour?  Or is it just me?
