    Nikon glass on new a7III?

    I don't know if I can wait any longer... Been a Nikon shooter for years, and as much as I love my D5, the new a7III has everything I need. Does anyone know of an adaptor that will work well with Nikon glass? I can't get a straight answer whether it will work with AF and transfer info. Thanks!

    AF-On button back button focus A73

    Sounds like you have Manual Focus Assist "On". This is camera tab 1 page 13 in menu.

    Lense for Astro photography

    How about the Rokinon 14mm F2.8 AS IF ED UMC Super Wide Angle. It's manual focus and comes in a native E-mount. I love it and it's well respected for night and astro photography by reviewers. A relative bargain at just over $300.

    Denali critters

    I spent the latter half of July and first half of August in the north, primarily Denali National Park Alaska. A few pictures (All: a7rII, FE 100-400 GM):

    I share (I hope you enjoy) some great pictures I've taken for three weeks along these beautiful states. For the trip I only used 2470gm although on some occasions a 12-24 and...a 100-400 would have been very useful. In almost all the shots (raw uncompressed) I used the "automatic" ETTR that allows the a7r3 and it seems it was an excellent choice almost always.I'm still reviewing some shots, I'll upload them as soon as possible. thanks for watching USA - West If you need advice, what and how to photograph these places in the best way or simple curiosities, contact me PM I will be happy to answer.

    2. Yes. Head the hint here http://helpguide.sony.net/ilc/1720/v1/en/contents/TP0001140441.html 3. No idea. 4. No idea. If I manage to wear the shutter out then I will wear it a badge of honor.

    A7iii + Sony Zeiss 24-70mm f4 OSS

    There’s an online help manual for all Sony cameras, this link will take you to it. 1. 2. It should work in both AF-S and AF-C. In the former the box will disappear after a short while. no idea on the other questions. I use an A9 and only use the electronic shutter so I doubt it will wear out any time soon... 😎

    A7RIII - update

    Are you referring to the body, or the lens? The reason why I'm asking is, that I'm having persistent autofocus issues with the same lens on an a9 body, when trying to shoot birds in flight. Both components are on the latest firmware.

    A7RIII - update

    Focus problems with this model are a known issue, unfortunately. The firmware is supposed to help but if you've already done that I'm not sure what to suggest. Some focus modes are worse than others. I'm waiting to hear back from Sony support on this exact issue :(

    Nikon glass on new a7III?

    `Just chiming back in again on this.... I've had my a7III a week now, and MAN do I love it! The Commlite adaptor works, but is a little intermittent. When I mount a lens it works fine, however sometimes when I change another Nikon lens, I need to take off the adapter and put it back on. Then works fine. Anyone else have this problem, or is that just the price I pay for non FE lenses? I will eventually add more FE lenses...

    Nikon glass on new a7III?

    Since many many years I use Nikon. D800 - glass: 15-35mm, 24-120mm, 28-300mm, Fisheye 16mm, 50mm f1.4, 60mm micro & IRIX 11mm. Since I have my a7RIII I use these lenses with the Commlite CM-ENF-E1 Pro and it`s working well. Only the AF is a with the 28-300mm is a bit slower. But that`s complainung on a high level. For example: The Irix is not listed in the compatibility list but working fine. If you want to shoot sports you should take original glass. Other example: The Sony 24-105mm is perfect. The face detection and Eye-AF is really fast (this speed is not reachable with other glasses)

    Nikon glass on new a7III?

    Thanks everyone... I will certainly NOT be getting rid of my D5, I'll end up selling one of my D3s's instead. I LOVE my D5, and that's staying with me for a long time. I want to add mirrorless to my arsenal, not necessarily replace it. With that being said, that's why I ask about an adaptor because I will still own my Nikon lenses- perhaps I'll sell a few of my duplicates, but we'll see.

    Nikon glass on new a7III?

    I have several Nikkors that I use with my a7Rii including 300mm/4 PF and 24-120mm/4 with the Commlite adapter. It AF and meta data works. There are lots of feedback on the subject online. https://www.amazon.com/Commlite-CM-ENF-E1-Autofocus-Electronic-Transmitting/dp/B073ZFDJG6 That said, the lenses focuses slightly slower ~85% of native, and VR really doesn't work. I'm currently debating between Nikkor 20mm/1.8 or the new Tokina 20mm/2.0AF (native FE). ps, just don't get rid of D5 until you have put a7iii to paces. I found a9 insufficient for some action shots where there are multiple subjects in a zone (e.g., soccer game). Nikon AF for sports is still better and more accurate. Haven't seen any a7iii AF comparison other than a single subject focus.

    Best 28mm legacy lenses

    It's my fave too. I really like the 28mm focal length to begin with, and I love everything about the SMC Pentax 28mm f/3.5 K (color, sharpness, contrast, etc.) It sings on the a7R/a7R II. -Tim
