    Sony 70-300G focusing issue?

    What did you do?
  3. It has always been set to Auto. Should I change it to manual/300mm?
  4. What command should i use for EXIFTOOL? Also when i use the Zeiss FE 55mm 1.8 prime with this camera, the pics are as sharp as they are on the A7. I seem to only have trouble with the FE 70-200 lens. When I turn the manual focus ring all the way through, i get: very blurry-->moderate blur--> a little blur ->moderate blur -> very blurry. This pic was the best of a bunch.
  5. Thanks, can you provide a link for the latest OS? I can only find the loader for 10.13 (which doesn't seem to work on either 10.13 or 10.14). Definitely using the small Sony cable. Cheers.
  6. I'm running 1.04 on the a6500. I can't update to 1.05, the file loader for the update file won't load despite following instructions EXACTLY (oh the irony). Will keep trying...
  7. I wish it were but no. I'm shooting in normal daylight, f4, ISO100.
  8. No, I've been using the DMF because the autofocus hasn't been performing. I can't get a sharp picture no matter what mode.
  9. Hi there, I have an original A7 for which have two FE Zeiss primes and the FE 70-200mm G. All works great, incredibly sharp pics. I also bought a A6500 body recently as well, mainly for use with the 70-200mm but obviously making it an effective 300mm with crop factor (I always felt 200mm was a bit short). The a6500 is clearly a good camera, but when I use the zoom lens, it is impossible to get a sharp photo. I have used the DMF focus setting and the camera is never able to get the image in focus. In fact, the focus peaking can't even find a sharp edge. I have tried switching off lens stabilisation but to no avail. By comparison, the A7 is ten times sharper, with same camera settings. Any suggestions for improving sharpness, or is it a case that this lens simply isn't suitable for the A6500? That would be disappointing given it was a recommended combination. Thanks, Jamie
