Re: Sony A7Riii A7Riv and Minolta 600mm f4 autofocus?

Remember to turn off electronic front curtain when using this lens. When I first used my A4 I was getting mixed results until I disabled this.

That's very interesting. What kinds of issues were you getting? I've not used the 600mm on my r4 yet.

BTW: Do you follow Gary Friedman's blog? He's experimenting with a chinese modified adapter which allows a lot of Minolta lenses to autofocus like a newer lens. "the Monster Adapter ... your focus point can be anywhere the camera allows, eye AF and tracking are both enabled".

Sounds very promising. 600 isn't one of the supported lenses yet though.
