I mounted the lens today for the first time and I was surprised why I couldn't impose f/2.8 working on A priority.
I have to go and read the manual about it as there are some more things to learn about it.
Just an interesting shot to start @5.6 !

I have a small problem which I am sure you guys, can help me in no time.

I bought a Sony A7 III along with a 100mm GM. As usual, I shoot A priority. Today, I mounted the lens for the first time and was very surprised when I could not adjust the aperture using the dial in the camera. The ring was at the A position on the lens but I couldn't go under f/5.6.

I have Googled a bit but couldn't find a way to turn this around.

Thank you !

That is interesting. This is the only non-cine lens I have ever heard of to do that. Sometimes I wonder if we shouldn't be using T-stops instead of f-stops, but there are probably reasons.

Thank you Bob. :2thumbs:
I will stop posting here for some time and will create new threads instead.
It seems I am the only crazy around to have bought such an exquisite piece of glass. :biggrin:
