Have owned a Canon5D3 for three years but am new to Sony. I enjoy the IQ of my Zeiss Milvus MF lenses and as I transition to my new camera would like to set up my a7Riii’s Custom menu and am hoping you could please share with me your thoughts on setting up C1 for MF lens?


If the lens communicates with the body, then you can have it set so it magnifies as you start to turn the focus ring - no need for a custom button.

If it doesn't, then yes, you need a custom button set up to magnify.
