FS5 + SELP18105G focus problem still not fixed

When I checked my email today, I was kinda happy. Sony support sent me an email, telling me that a new firmware for the SELP18105G came out that should fix a couple of problems, notably the focus issues with the zoom rocker on the smart grip.

While the thin focus throw of the lens was fixed with this update, the zoom rocker still throws the lens out of focus.

I need to mention again that this doesn’t happen with a standard LANC controller.

Sony, you really need to get this problem fixed!!!!

  1. Hi! Do You know if Sony finally fixed the problem? Thanks!

    • I am afraid this hasn’t been fixed yet. There are people on the web who will tell you that the problem doesn’t exist but I have spoken both to the store I bought the unit and to fellow users and they all have that issue. Sometimes the lens adjust itself and sometimes not.
