Common Issues and Resolutions
Auto-Magnify works only with some of my lenses
Note that auto-magnify requires a lens which transmits distance information to work.
I cannot turn-off Auto-Magnify!
Problem: I want to use Focus Peaking alone without Auto-Magnify getting in my way. If MF Assist is turned off using the camera's Setup menu, it cannot be activated altogether. What I want is to activate MF Assist only when I manually press a button.
Resolution: see “Focus Peaking” section in the Metabones Smart Adapter/Speed Booster Operation Manual. In a nutshell, there are 2 possible solutions.
MF Assist and Focus Peaking are turned on in Setup Menu, camera body set to MF in Camera menu, and AF/MF switch of lens set to AF (only possible with lenses supporting full-time manual focus), or
configure the Metabones Smart Adapter in Green Mode.
Image Stabilization remains activated even when I am just browsing the camera's Setup menu.
Resolution: put the Metabones Smart Adapter in Green Mode.
Incorrect Maximum Aperture is displayed on the camera
Resolution: some third-party zoom lenses require registration with the Metabones Smart Adapter before their maximum aperture will be displayed correctly. See “Lens Registration” section in the Metabones Smart Adapter/Speed Booster Operation Manual.
