I think my Steady shot is reversed on my new A7iii, maybe only with the LA-EA4 adaptor

I have been frustrated that a lot of my images using my aps-c lenses have been slightly blurry,

Not anything to with shutter speed ( well above the 1/focal length rule) or focus as even on manual with focus peaking still the same.

With it on the image in the lcd shakes and the taken image is blurred but with it off it is sharp. You can see which is which -only cropped and converted to jpg by LR .
With DT 16-80 @ 20/24mm iso 400. 1/50 f8
using LA-EA4.
All is fine with FF lenses, e g Sony 70-200G, whether the EA3 or the Ea4 adapter

After posting this first on Sony alpha FB it was all me me me.
Having a play around in the menu I had set SS to manual and at 200mm.
1 SS on.
Not used to this new feature after the A700, 77 & 77M2.
Now to go out and re-shoot all the blurred subjects - derelict dairy sheds in the rural area around me.

2SS off

Well, it explains why you did not have the problem with the 70-200 and it shows how the SS (Steady Shot) is dependent on focallength.

Next time just ask here and share the results of your second try
