Alexander I have to admit at this point my settings are continually evolving BUT with the 7Dii you can have at least 3 different profiles set up in the memories and different profiles to your back buttons....just taking me a while to get a mental wrap on it all.
Now a word about the Sony a77ii. I've done MFA on some of the EOS lenses and bodies with FoCal.
So I get the a77ii and this thread spurred me to study if and how.
I found a neat thread somewhere on the net where it's most Sony posters. They were going through all the different methods/software like Focal,
the pyramid, etc.
One lady posted up something I found very interesting. Here are her directions-
'I think my way of testing is a bit less sophisticated but it works for me in real life situations:
1. I have set my af/mf button on the back of my camera to toggle and I have set the focus peaking to bright yellow and on.
2. I press the af/mf button on the back of my camera to switch to manaul focus with peaking set to on. I manually focus on something with high contrast.
3. Then I press the af/mf button once again to switch back to af. Then I half press my shutter release button for engaging the af and if the lens moves then I need to micro adjust. If you look closely in which direction the lens moves then you know whether the lens back- or front focusses.
4. In my last step I just adjust the micro adjust for so long until there is no "correction" done when engaging the af.'
It is the simplest method of MFA I've ever heard of, can be done in the field, can be repeated so quickly.
So I did it and nothing moved with the Tam 150/600, so woohoo on that.
I don't think this applied to Canon bodies or does it? On a Canon body can we not assign a button on the back for manual focus? I know we can
assign one for AF back button focusing. It would have to be done in live view of course.
Anyway just me thinking out loud.
