  1. Here is a great Sony focusing guide recently published by DPREVIEW. https://www.dpreview.com/articles/9738160607/guide-how-to-get-the-most-out-of-sonys-autofocus-technologies?utm_source=newsletter&utm_medium=email&utm_campaign=2018-december-04&ref_=pe_1822230_378188200_dpr_nl_349_20
  2. For some reason your lens is not communicating with your camera. f--- flashing orange is the classic symptom.
  3. Try Shotcut. It is a free, open source, cross platform video editor.
  4. Have you considered a teleconverter? A 2x would extend your 70-200 to 400mm.
  5. The Sony Apps work on the original a7 line and the a7ii line, but not on the a7iii line.
  6. I have no insight into the reasoning behind this, but as a former real-time software coder, my guess is that they were limited by the amount of on-board memory they had to work with.
  7. Unfortunately, the APS-C/Super 35mm menu item is not one that can be assigned to a button or assigned to the function menu in the a7Rii.
  8. I have the 55mm 1.8 and the 24-70mm 2.8. The 24-70/2.8 is the lens I use most often. There are mainly three situations where I use my 55/1.8: 1) when I want ultimate sharpness; 2) when I need a faster shutter speed in low light; and 3) when I don't want such a large lens hanging around my neck.
  9. Several years ago, some of the buttons on my a900 exhibited similar symptoms to the ones you describe. I sent it off for repair, and the response was that it was not worth repairing. Suspecting that the problem might have been caused by getting a little rain on my camera at the beach, I decided to drop a little isopropyl alcohol into the offending buttons. After giving the alcohol ample time to evaporate, my button problem disappeared, and my old a900 has been working fine ever since. If your camera is still under warranty, I would definitely send it in for repair before trying the alcohol.
  10. Have you tried the "Eye AF" function? This focus mode will actually track an eye. I have not personally used this mode, but I have seen many positive comments about it.
  11. I would recommend the 35mm f/2.8 for street photography. It is a small lens, so is not conspicuous, and is quite sharp. It complements the small size of the a7rii. I guess it depends on your style of shooting, but I think the FOV of the 35mm works better for street photography than the smaller FOV of the 58mm and the larger FOV of the 28mm.
