    My A7R2's setting "AF w/ shutter" is set to OFF, so autofocus is not activated by (half-)pressing the shutter button. Much to my dismay I discovered that infrared remote shutter operation activates autofocus irrespective of the setting mentioned.

    I'd like to deactivate AF on operating the infrared remote's shutter button. Is there a way to do that or is this one of those little nasties in the user interface that I have to put up with?

    I'm going to hazard a guess and say it's a nasty you'll have to put up with Ad.
    I could be wrong, but I doubt that's the case. I think it's a case of not all programmers think like photographers.
    I'll bet it's something they could update with a software change though.
