  1. Thanks for your reply. I did not know about re-centering by pressing the multi-selector. Thanks for the tip.
  2. I'm new to my Sony A7III and for the most part happy, but recently I've noticed after I take a picture and move somewhere to take another, the green focus point has moved and I have to use the joy stick to recenter it. I like to keep it centered for those run and gun type of shots. Any suggestions? Thanks very much!
  3. I was following a YouTube tutorial and made some setting changes and saved them to the 1 on the MR (Memory Recall) Memory. Does anyone know how to clear those settings? Location: Camera Settings I menu, Page 3. Thanks!
  4. Please disregard. I have found the answers to my questions. Thanks anyway.
  5. Hi All. I do a lot of outdoor photography; landscape, nature, wildlife when I can find it. I recently switched from a Canon 80D to a Sony A7III. I'm torn between two lenses and was wondering if any of you could help. First Sigma has a 100-400mm f/5.6.3 DG OS HSM Contemporary Lens for Canon EF that can be coupled with the Sigma MC-11 mount converter Canon EF-E. This seems like a good way to go except everywhere I usually shop says they are on back order and havve no idea when they will get them in. I did find a refurbished version of this lens that I could buy but I'm hesitant to buy refurbished. There is also a Sigma 150-600mm f/5-6.3 DG OS HSM with the same Sigma MC-11 adapter that I am considering. I guess I should say that I absolutely cannot affford the native Sony 100-400mm lens. Oh I wish I could. Do you folks have any recommendations? I'm not a pro, but In love photography and especially outdoor photography. Thanks very much for your time
  6. Hi. I didn't see this posted so thought I'd ask it here. I want a 100-400mm lens for my Sony A7III but can't afford any of the Sony lenses. I was wonderinig if anyone could tell me if the Tamron 100-400mm f/4.5-6.3 Di VC USD Lens for Canon EF would work if I paired it with my Metabones EF-E mount T adapter? I have tried asking Metabones, Sony, and Tamron but got no response. B&H and Adorama didn't really seem to know. Any help anyone here could give would be greatly appreciated. TIA
  7. Hi. If this isn't the place to post this, I apologize. I'm really new to my Sony A7III and foolishly tried to clean some tough dust spots off my sensor by myself. Now I have more spots than I had before and I think I have a kind of smear on one side. Can anyone tell me what to look for to know if I have damaged the surface of the sensor? I'm going to have to get it professionally cleaned obviously, but I'm just curious if it's going to be a cleaninig or something major. I'm going to attach a couple of files that show the spots. Thanks very much in advance.
  8. ...And I suddenly feel really dumb. Yes. Of course that is where the list is. I've been so busy looking elsewhere that I neglected the most obvious place. Thank you very much.
  9. I just got my new Sony A7 III and am trying to learn all I can about it. I'm going to go out on a limb here and ask what may be a dumb question: There are numerous icons displayed on the LCD and in the viewfinder, some ofo which I cannot figure out their meaninig. Is there anywhere that I can find a list of all of these possible icons? Thanks in advance.
