  • Replied in Found It!
    It's working.  I assigned the function "AF/MF Control Hold" to the AF-ON button.  While looking for this solution, I discovered that the A7III provides separate button customizations for stills ...
  • Thanks for the suggestion, but Pre-AF is not enabled when in MF mode.
  • Thanks, but I can't find a function to assign to a custom button.  I see nothing in the manuals indicating that the function is supported.
  • Created discussion thread A7III: Feature not supported?
    On my A7SII, I'm able to AF when in MF mode by pressing the AF/MF button.  I rely upon this method to get around lack of AF-S support in movie mode.  I cannot find a way to do the equivalent on ...
  • Created discussion thread A7Riii focus
    I'm considering replacing my A7Sii with a A7Riii. In movie mode, I typically set MF and use the back AF button to do single AF. There is one problem: in this configuration, the focus indicator ...
  • That's something to consider if options remain limited. The one scenario that drove me to look for another lens is a small classroom with students doing activities. I'd say the distance ranges ...
  • Thanks for the responses. It looks like the best option is waiting to see what comes along later this year. The batis 25 looks perfect in specs and is tempting, but I'm trying to hold back on cost.
  • If I were shooting landscape or other subjects with little movement, MF would be ok. I'm primarily shooting video of subjects moving in all directions. AF isn't perfect in this scenario, but still ...
  • Thanks for the suggestion.  Both of those zooms look great, but I don't have much need for the ulrawide range on those, plus the batis 25 is less expensive.
  • Yes, AF is a requirement, which means native mount because I have an a7sii.  I've already tried metabones and EF lenses and AF was marginal at best with this camera.  Sold the adapter. Thanks
  • Created discussion thread Fast wide options
    I'd like to round out my kit with a fast wide in the 24mm range.  However, I don't want to spend a lot because it won't be needed frequently.  I've considered the 28 f2, but it seems too close to ...
  • Agree!  I was shooting video of my children last night in typical room lighting with a gx85 (which I assume is close to g85 in low light performance).  I had to expose at iso 3200 and 6400.  Both ...
  • I use AF-S exclusively in video with my gx85.  I'm not sure why you are seeing slower focus with this.  Mine is lightning fast.  When filming my children, it's set on all focus points with face ...
