I just noticed that my A7RIV applies distortion compensation to live-view when that setting is manually set to Auto. The A7RII does not do this. It only applies distortion compensation to live-view when using those Sony lenses that force the distortion compensation. I now wonder when this started. Is this a fourth generation feature? I think the A7III still acted like the A7RII.

I have noticed that some lenses seem to have it in live view and some show a definite jump on the A7Rii after the picture is taken. Are you saying it is the lens that chooses this, not the camera?

The Sony lenses that Sony has decided not to let people turn off Distortion Compensation have always applied the Distortion Compensation in live-view. It seems to change per body which lenses do this, so I don't know that the lens determines it. The FE kit zooms and the 28mm are examples. The APS-C kit zooms act the same on the APS-C bodies.
