  5. Early, I am asked the similar question and I made experiment with focusing and AF Illuminator (lasser pattern from flash). This combination didn't have advantage in focusing speed and accuracy - http://www.sonyalphaforum.com/topic/4088-metz-52-on-sony-a7-af-beam/ Probably, requires a new type of AF-assistant. And may be Sony will make it in first professional camera, also are named as "A9".
  6. Do not worry, I almost understand that you mean And the same time I learned English Yesterday I attempted to get focusing in dark at the flat white wall and "wood" floor with laser pattern AF-assistance from YN-568EX II mounted on Canon 6D (lens with cap). On the same time I pushed on shot buttons on both camera: Sony A7 was trying to get the focus and YN-568EX was emitting red-laser pattern on the wall. So, can I tell? It is definitely not work Today evening I will add a couple samples photos from my experiment. (by Moscow time)
  7. Thanks for answer! You are Englishman and you have perfect native English, but that is a little complicated for my intermediate level... I will try the autofocus at Sony A7 with help of laser pattern from YN-568EX which will mounted on Canon 6D soon
  8. As far as I know automatic magnification does not working with lens without electronic link with camera and working with lens on E-mount and with several electronic adapters (except Sony LA-EA).
  9. I use Metz-52 AF-1 on Sony A7. Build quality and flash work is very good for me. But AF-beam (focus assist) from flash unit is not activated. I did "On" at "AF-beam" in flash settings and "On" at "focus assist" in camera setting, and still red diode work from camera only! What is wrong? All firmware is up to date. Sony A7 - V3.1 and Metz-52 - V1.2. PS: I was using YN-568EX on Nikon D7000 with laser AF-assist two years ago (before I moved from Nikon at Sony). This couple work very good: camera is focusing in any dark even at long range.
