    A7RII Auto ISO & minimum shutter speed

    Has anyone tested Auto Iso on the new A7RII? I received mine today and have been trying it out with a Sony 24-70 and Leica M lenses. This is my first Sony and I am coming from the Leica M and Nikon D800E. It is in aperture priority mode but the minimum shutter speed does not seem to have any effect. This is how it works on the Nikon without any problems. The good news is that my 24, 35, 50 and 90mm M lenses to to work ok. However, I have not checked them yet on the laptop for any stage colour smearing etc.

    Not sure this helps, but from the manual:

    Note

    If the exposure is insufficient even when the ISO sensitivity is set to [ISO AUTO Maximum] in [ISO AUTO], in order to shoot with an appropriate exposure, the shutter speed will be slower than the speed set in [ISO AUTO Min. SS].

    Thanks for the quick response. I noticed that as well in the user guide. The ISO was set at the highest, so it should have worked. Interestingly, I tried it this morning with my Leica 24mm M lens (+ Novoflex adaptor) and its working ok. Will reset everything and try it later with the Sony lens.

    It's not reading that Leica lens exit data ,so it really has no idea what aperture you are at. Now it most likely works with a Metabones/ Canon lens because it's reading the Exif from the lens.
    Photography is all about experimentation and without it you will never learn art.
