That does look Helios-y to me.

yep! helios 40 at 2.8 (I think). I would only ever use it when I had a ton of time because it took me way too long to get shots in great focus. Nailed it every single shot with the Techart.

Here's one from the only other lens I have that I can currently use with it...the Helios 44-2. I typically only used the lens for "flare bombs", but I could see my using it for more now. Although, when my minolta adapter comes in, my 58 1.2 will get most of my time.

Focus works fine on a Contax 35mm 2.8 PC Shift lens, except when I shift.
Have A7RII set on flexible spot focus.
Any thoughts on what to try?
Have others been successful with shift lenses?

Forgive me for not searching all 44 pages. This product really took off fast.

Will the Techart adapter enable the eye AF, face recognition, and flexible spot focus on the a7R II?

Jim, no on Eye AF, yes on Face Recognition and yes on Selectable AF points (if that's what you meant). Basically, it is the same set of AF features created by Metabones before the latest update.

To clarify it doesn't do flexible spot.. You can choose your focus point and move the box around, but not 'drag' the box around like with Flex S/M/L focus. I do miss that, but I'm just focusing and recomposing now, or if I really have the time, choosing the appropriate AF point to use.

TAP is compatible with Flexible Spot. I think you are referring to Lock-on AF. (Which does not work with TAP or any other adapter)

I think I discovered a trick to stop battery drainage.

Once you store your camera with TAP connected, just remove the battery and insert it back. I have not found any drainage after doing this for a few days.
That could explain why battery drainage is not consistent and why I never found any drainage when inserting a fresh changed battery.

Thanks Fred. Each time I download images I put in a new battery. Never noticed a problem.

No it is working. I use flexible spot medium and can move it all over the place. It's more accurate on center but you can move it two clicks anyway you want and still works good. After that it starts to hunt. Find where that is so you know it in the field. Wide also works actually too , I don't use it. This is both AFS and AFC .

I know it's a pain but folks need to read this whole thread

I am also finding the same.

yes, at 40 pages there is already so much info, but i feel like too many questions can be answered with
"asked and answered" (no, i'm not an attorney, i just watch them on TV)

Perhaps we should start a FAQ and once it's done, I could add it to the first page. Any volunteers?

Okay. First Q&A:

Q: How to update firmware. A: Follow the instructions in the booklet that came with your adapter.

Yep, you're correct.. I always called it flexible spot, since it's rather flexible.. But I was referring to lock-on flex spot where you can move the camera and it follows a specific focus point automatically.. that is the one that doesn't work.

Sorry for the confusion.
