Does anyone know how to change the focus point in a7? ... I read the 95 page manual provided with the camera but cannot find how to change the focus points. Also, the manual is probably written by a 2nd grade student, it is really that basic and bad ... it hardly feels like a manual fit for a camera of this price range. As I went through each page, my reaction was WTF!OK, I figured out how to do it ... a bit long winded, but it works. In doing so I found that the sides of the images are horribly soft ... I guess it might be the weakness of the kit lens ... but the center is stunningly sharp.
For those who are like me searching how to change focus points:
Hit "Fn" button, choose "Focus Area" and select "Flexible Spot M" ... then you can use the Control Wheel on the back of the camera to select the focus point.
If anyone knows a faster way, please do share. Thanks
Hit the "ok" button, select the AF with "wheel" button, hit "ok" again.
Face and eye AF detection work really good with portrait. Very easy to compose the shot.
