I think you will be very happy with this lens... I like everything about it, image quality, focusing ability, etc., etc...I am getting used to it a bit. Right now the biggest issue I have with the handling is the front dial placement. With the grip being so short, I’m only left with two fingers on the grip when I go to rotate the front dial. That and the exposure comp dial is very stiff. I will have to order a grip extension or a battery grip.
I have customized it pretty well now and added some elements to the custom menu.
just got the Tamron 28-75. Haven’t shot much with it, but that’s a true mirrorless lens.
Have you tried the focus hold? Once it focuses on the person face you want, then you can hold the focus to prevent the camera focusing around. Also you can try lock-on expand flexible spot. Move around to get the target face and once it focuses on the face you want, it’ll stay focus on that face as long as you keep pressing the focus.
Yes sir. One more thing, in order to get the focus you want, in your case, HI speed continuous shooting mode would be very helpful too. Good luck.Much obliged Edwin ! Excellent tip ! Why haven't I thought of that before ?
I will try that procedure tomorrow !
That's great. But what it is you're trying to show us? What focus mode did you use?
Thank you Edwin for your comment.That's great. But what it is you're trying to show us? What focus mode did you use?
I honestly don't have a problem with focusing on my A7iii. At least so far. With A7ii it was awful especially with 28/2.0!
But I forgot to tell you this, for multiple faces you have to turn 'Face Detect Frame' on, that way when the face box turned white on target face from gray you then press the focus to lock on that face. Even with many faces and you move the camera for recomposing, your camera will focus on that target face, as long as the subject is still in the frame. If you haven't tried this, you should. You'd be amazed.
