Af doesn't work in manuel settings.No problem to me.

Yes. That's a firmware limitation for all SLTs. Video AF is only available with the aperture locked at f/3.5 or the maximum aperture of the lens if it is smaller than f/3.5.

The highest frame rate stills mode has the same limitation.

Many would like to see this restriction lifted. The cameras are capable of autofocusing from f/1.4 to about f/11.

Yes.I know f3,5 situation.It's quite stange.

A99ii is have amazing video quality but f3.5 is weakness.

I'm using a37+16-50mm. IQ and AF is good.

Contunious shooting is very bad. Writing speed to slow and small buffer size.
