  1. Need suggestions for a macro lens for an A7 III. Sony or off brand - doesn't matter. Thanks.
  2. The Exposure Compensation Dial is hopeless. It's just in a bad position and I have to learn to check it every time I shoot. The Drive Mode when I set it with the Fn (function) button is a different story, however. I choose continuous bracketing and set it for the number of shots and the bracketing interval. After a few shots i find that things have changed and instead of (for example) the 5 shot bracket that I set it for, I am now getting 3. Is there any way to lock this down?!
  3. I've read some good reports for using this combination with an adapter. Can anyone give me your opinion. What adapter?
  4. I recently switched from Nikon to a Sony a7 III. I have 2 lenses: the FE 24-105 f/4 and the FE 70-300 f/4.5-5.6. I need something with a better low light capability. I'm covered from 24mm to 300 mm so that probably means a prime lens. I'm here fishing for suggestions.
  5. I want to assign focusing to the Multi-Select ("joy stick") button. I should be able to (1) disable focus on the shutter release button by going to Camera Settings 1 Menu, page 6. I've done this. And then (2) I should be able to go to the Camera Settings 2 Menu, Page 8 and choose the picture Custom Key, and than screen 2 (of 3), and then the Multi-Select Button. According to what I've seen on YouTube, I should now see a screen with 2 choices: AF On Focus Hold If I choose AF On I've set the Multi-Select button as my back button focuser. I cannot find the screen with the two
  6. I learned long ago that depending on the manual was not a good idea. For my last 3 cameras (two of them Nikons) I went to books written specifically for the camera. It's an extra $20-$30, but I've never been disappointed. I purchased the Sony A7 III a few weeks ago and went to Amazon for this book https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/1681984121/ref=oh_aui_detailpage_o03_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1 It has been very helpful, and I've thrown in a few YouTube videos on specific subjects such as bracketing for HDR.
