    Read the thread "Autofocus with anything" it deals with the experience of at least two members of this list.

    Re: Techart Adaptor On Sony A7 Anyone?

    I got mine two day ago and my first impressions are as follows( I have used it on a Kolarivision mod A7M2);
    With normal and short lenses the Af is reasonably fast and accurate in good light.
    With lenses 75mm and above it is necessary to prefocus manually and then let the Techart finish the job.
    Face and Eye detection AF are not enabled.
    Battery drainage is noticeable.
    Focus assistance is not enabled. I need to manually revert to manual focus to enable focus peaking and enlargement.
    With FW 1.0 (as it was shipped) it was quite noisy but with FW 2.0 this problem has gone.
    More or less it behaves as I was expecting.
