    Posted: 25 June 2017 at 09:16
Hi all,

When I do manual focusing on my Sony gear, the MF assistant zooms in at the position of my af point is, which is very helpful.
Except my a7rII does always zoom in the center and I have to move the zoom frame.
Is there a way to change it to zoom at the af point at the a7rii? I can't find. So I either be blind or the a6300 and a6500 do. have features the a7rii does not have...

After searching (I've never handled the a7rII) Freidman's e-book and the Sony manual it seems there's no setting to lock MF assist zoom or Focus Magnify to the chosen focus point. Focus magnify has you choose where it will zoom to before it engages and MF assist will zoom in and then let you scroll around with the cursor keys.

I'm pretty sure my A6000 behaves in the same way. It's annoying and I ended up turning off MF Assistant. (As in, the mode when it enlarges the image when you turn the lens focus ring in MF mode).

The A99ii will zoom in at the selected AF point. That's way more useful.
