Sony A7r III with Canon 1.2 lenses - Aperture error - 1.3


Have been using my Metabones Adaptor with the a7R III for Canon EF glasses.
However, I notice that with both the 50/1.2L and 85/1.2L II, both lenses only open up to f1.3, and not f1.2.
I am curious as to why that may be? Is it Metabones problem? Canon's? It obviously does not matter to the images, but I am curious why that may be the case. Anyone?

The lens is fully open but aperture is 1.3 not 1.2.... Anybody has the same problem?

Yes...well I don't really think this is an error. Also happens to my other adapted lenses as well. As long as you known which lens is which, this does not bother me at all
