A 24-70GM that doesn't track well on a A9

p.1 #1 · p.1 #1 · A 24-70GM that doesn't track well on a A9


I have a friend that purchased the A9 along with the 70-200 f2.8 G Master. He also got a 24-70 f2.8 G Master. He is now on his 2nd 24-70 that is NOT tracking well. He gets 100% of every type of shot he attempts with the 70-200, but for some reason on the 24-70's as the runner approaches him it loses it completely. He has best results in the Wide and Face Detection Mode. He's tried other modes, but it seems to ONLY be on the 24-70 G Mater. Any suggestion about 2 24-70's being bad? Is he perhaps missing some magical setting that would allow the 24-70 to better track action, especially when it gets closer to him (within 12 feet). That is when it is really bad. He's bummed he's going to probably have to send this 2nd copy back as before. What gives?

Sony updated the firmware of all their GM lenses to make it fully compatible with the A9. I would suggest for your friend to check the FW of his GM 24-70mm lens and to update the FW to the current version. Not guaranteeing it would solve the problem but chances it may.
