Just got the A7R. With the 35mm FE lens, I figured out how to use magnified view. I tried using several of my "A" mount lens with the LAEA3. Rather disappointing....maybe I need the LAEA4. I attached the sony A mount 28mm f2.8. It does NOT auto focus at all. I could live with that if I could manually toggle magnified view "ON", focus, then "OFF" and shoot. For the life of me I cannot activate magnified view. I tried assigning F3 to do it, but when I push it I only get a small rectangle around where I am aiming..but no magnification. My 20mm f2.8 Minolta AF lens, the focus ring will not turn at all. No manual Focus....nothing. My Zeiss 16-35 will manual focus, but again, I cannot trigger magnified view to manually focus it. It sort of auto focuses...it hunts for a while, then finally snaps in. If I could magnify, I would probably only use MF. Please help!!! Driving me crazy! Thanks in advance.
P.S. I have a bunch of adapters, and legacy lenses, but if I cannot use magnified view, it will not be a pleasant experience.
Thanks in advance.
