Hi All

I believe the focus points on the A7RIII are coloured orange when moved using the touchscreen or a rather more difficult to see grey, when being moved using the joystick?

The A7RIII is a camera I've been considering for a while but the above has always put me off. A couple of hours ago I came across this post in respect of the A7III:

https://community.sony.co.uk/t5/alpha-nex-interchangeable-lens-cameras/sony-a7-iii-light-grey-focus-point-no-colour-options-or-change-in/td-p/2605019

Please, can anyone tell me if the above 'fix' happens to work on the A7RIII?

Thanks

John

I just set it up on my A7RIII and it works perfectly. Press the joystick once and then tap it in any direction. The focus point does turn orange.

Thanks Dan, that's great news!

I've browsed your impressive galleries and see you have experience of several Sony cameras, with some of the more recent entries taken by the A7RIII. How do you rate it for someone not especially interested in fast action sports or video?

Thanks again.

John
