Model of the day: Sunny (Sony A7rII af focus dilemma at f8 or smaller)


Shot with the Sony A7rII and the Sigma MC11 & Canon 50mm 1.4 at f11
When shooting at f8 or higher, Canon lenses via the Sigma MC 11 exclusively, I hope Sony will release a firmware update to allow af aquisition wide open again-rather then at the working aperture with terrible results from f8 onward. The Canon/Sigma combo on the other hand, acquires focus wide open and stops down for the actual exposure.
