I assume this is with the most recent firmware for the Batis. What are the focus issues that you are still experiencing?

Yes, it is the latest Firmware from April.

The issues i have that it often happens that my A7r2 shows that it has catched the focus from the eyes of my kids.

when i see the photo on the screen of the cam everything looks great.

When i see the pics on the big screen i realize that fht focus is not on the eye but on the nose or the hair.

This is tricky because you have the green mark around the eye but in the end it didnt hit.

The 35 1.8 seems a lot better and the samyang 35 1.4 was way better and the 35 2.8 sony zeiss was absoutley perfect.

So this is sometimes really sad because you have to delete a lot good snapshots with the batis 40 :/

That’s strange as my Batis 40mm is working very well, it nails the focus on the eyes after installing the latest firmware. I do a lot of portraits.
