    I have both the a6300 and a7II and the Sony FE 90mm f2.8 Macro Lens.
    I went to use it today and I cannot use the lens in any AF mode on both cameras. Tested other lenses with both those bodies and they work fine.
    The AF choices are greyed out and I get the message, Invalid with This Lens.

    I appear to have a serious problem and I leave for Costa Rica in less than 4 weeks.
    AF is not required but handy... can always use the lens in MF.

    Do you have current firmware in both cameras?

    NEVERMIND, I MADE DUMB MISTAKE!
    I learned something new about my lens after reading the manual.
    Did not know the focus ring moved... out of AF or in for MF.

    WHAT!!! YOU READ THE MANUAL??? :D
    It's sad how complicated even the simplest things are becoming.
    Latest firmware update. Maybe i should give up digital and move back to analog, or even glasplates.

    Hahaha yes, I lent this lens to another Alpha shooting friend once... he came back two minutes later asking, "Is this a MF lens?" It happens!
