I noticed what I see as a problem with continuous AF hunting on my A7rII today.
Today I was shooting outside in bright sun at f11, continuous AF. I noticed the focus would hunt back and forth, even on a clearly contrasty subject. However if I changed the aperture to f8, the focus stops hunting and has no trouble locking on.
This was with the Sony Zeiss 35mm f1.4.
Has anyone else been bothered by this behaviour? Not sure if it's just since the latest firmware update, because I normally shoot close to wide open.
To me this is bad. What if I wanted to shoot someone walking towards me at f/11? Most of the shots would be soft.
Hopefully this will be fixed in the upcoming firmware update. I have attached an iPhone video of the behaviour here: https://youtu.be/QkzPR9xtMIg
Any workarounds? I've tried playing with various camera settings but it makes no difference.
