Has Sony Broken Eye AF with the Latest Firmware Update?

See my Sony mirrorless wishlist.

I updated the firmware on my Sony A7R III a few days ago and then configured the camera for Face/Eye AF (it is disturbing that Eye AF is now lumped together with "face", the two being radically different when working at wider apertures or close range), and "human".

The next day I shot 14 portrait images with the Sony FE 24mm f/1.4 GM at close range. Of those one (1) image had a sharp iris of the eye. The other 13 were all junk-focused—very blurry iris of the eye, with sharp eyelashes and eyebrows or similar. The subject had eyeglasses on, if that somehow matters.

Possibly I am doing something wrong, but how? If the camera is set for Eye AF and "human" what else am I supposed to do?

If it’s configured correctly, I now have to rate Sony Eye AF as total garbage.

Zeiss Otus 100mm f/1.4 APO-Sonnar at 187 Megapixels: Church Mosaic Straight-On (Panasonic S1R Multi-Shot High-Res Mode)

Get Zeiss Otus at B&H Photo.

Here, the Zeiss Otus 100mm f/1.4 APO-Sonnar is put to the ultimate test using the 187 megapixel Multi-Shot High-Res mode on the Panasonic S1R. This scene is difficult enough at sensor resolution, so this is a severe test of a lens performance headroom.

I’ve added a second example to the first one. In diglloyd Zeiss DSLR Lenses:

Zeiss Otus 100mm f/1.4 APO-Sonnar Examples: Multi-Shot High-Res Mode (Panasonic S1R)

Includes images at up to 47, 93 125, 187 megapixels.

As with the previous example, the detail level is astonishing, even at full resolution. Subtleties smeared away for the past decade shooting this target at lower resolution pop out: individual tiles have their own distinct color, nor is there any detectable noise. The grout itself is cleanly delineated. Defects within each tiny tile can be seen. There is no reason that the 187 megapixel version could not be used directly for a print.

If high resolution is a priority (along with superior color purity, ultra low noise, freedom from digital artifacts), it is hard to justify buying a conventional Sony mirrorless or Nikon mirrorless or Canon mirrorless camera as there is just no comparison. This is way WAY better than all but the most exotic medium format cameras. Of course, lots of photography has other priorities, handholding being the most obvious. But for sheer awesome imaging power with a suitable subject, no other 35mm camera can touch the Panasonic S1R with a high-grade lens.

Nikon Recalls Some Nikon Z7 and Nikon Z6 Cameras for Vibration Reduction Issues

See my Nikon mirrorless wishlist at B&H Photo.

The Technical Service Advisory for Users of the Nikon Z 6 and Z 7 Cameras confirms what one reader reported to me and which I experienced myself with one Nikon Z7 body.

Nikon Z7

Technical Service Advisory for Users of the Nikon Z 6 and Z 7 Cameras

MAY 16, 2019

Thank you for choosing Nikon for your photographic needs.

Issue

While Nikon has taken great measures to assure the high quality expected of Nikon products, it has come to our attention that the vibration reduction (VR) feature in some Nikon Z 6 and Z 7 cameras may not function fully. We sincerely apologize for any inconvenience this may have caused.

Resolution

Nikon has resolved this by making available corrective service for affected Z 6 and Z 7 cameras free of charge, including the cost of shipping an affected Z 6 and Z 7 camera to Nikon as well as its return, even if your Z 6 or Z 7 camera warranty has expired.

Nikon Z7 Firmware Update Brings Eye AF

Get Nikon Z7 at B&H Photo.

Given the unacceptable hit rate of Panasonic S1R Eye AF, I’m not assuming that Nikon Eye AF is as good as Sony Eye AF. It’s got to have a 95% hit rate on the iris of the eye, not the frustrating “eyelash focus” of the Panasonic S1R.

In general I trust Nikon to take its time to do things right, but I’m in favor of “trust but verify” for companies that have done a reliable job before.

Nikon’s description of the Nikon Z7 and Nikon Z6 firmware update 2.0 below.

Nikon Z7

Firmware 2.0: Eye-Detection AF & More

Superior image quality is the foundation of the Nikon Z series. Now, the all-new Firmware 2.0 upgrade builds upon that foundation with key feature enhancements developed in direct response to user feedback. Among the exciting improvements are the highly-anticipated Eye-Detection AF feature for still shooting, improved AF performance in low light and AE tracking capability in continuous high-speed (extended) mode. Firmware 2.0 ushers in the next era of a camera system designed to never stop evolving.

Eye-Detection AF

  • Continuously tracks eyes, even when subjects move within the frame
  • Works in AF-S and AF-C focus modes.
  • Intelligently recognizes the eyes of multiple people in the frame, giving you the freedom to choose which person and eye to focus on.
  • Remains locked on the eyes even when face is partially or temporarily obstructed .
  • Built on a legacy of Nikon autofocus and facial recognition innovations.

Even Better AF Performance in Low Light

  • Faster, more accurate focusing indoors and for night portraits.
  • Reduces the need to switch to Low-Light AF mode to acquire focus.

AE Tracking in Continuous H+ (extended) Shooting

  • Auto Exposure (AE) continues to track in every shot throughout the entire burst sequence

Canon’s Sleeper Strategy: Produce the Best Mirorrless Lenses (by far), with High-Res Pro Body to Come?

Get Canon EOS R system at B&H Photo.

It is now clear having tested all Nikon NIKKOR Z lenses except the 14-30mm that Nikon is producing very good but “high consumer grade” lenses for the Z system. I expect the Nikon NIKKOR Z 14-30mm f/4 S to rely even more heavily on sharpness-damaging distortion correction, and that’s not the only sharpness-damaging optical shortcut. I am disappointed in Nikon serving up lenses that are excellent in many ways, but fall flat on the most important areas: resolving power and micro contrast.

Even Leica uses such tricks with very expensive lenses—a disagreeble trend in the era of high resolution digital.

Canon plans to succeed with discerning pros?

Canon is taking another tack, producing “L” lenses that are true pro grade that are second to none. Canon has stated that very high optical quality is the goal and that size and weight are not priorities. This is a very different approach from Nikon or Leica, with Sony doing some of both, but falling short of Canon’s commitment to excellence.

To wit: the Canon RF 50mm f/1.2L and Canon RF 28-70mm f/2L are extremely impressive performers, and I expect no less of the new Canon RF 85mm f/1.2L*.

Canon’s pro-grade lens strategy makes sense if there is a high megapixel Canon EOS R body coming this year. The top-flight L lenses should make a killer combination.

* The Canon RF 24-105mm f/4L IS is a dud, but every vendor needs a kit lens.

Sharpness and Micro Contrast Losses from Mandatory Distortion Correction with the Nikon NIKKOR Z 24-70mm f/2.8 S

Get Nikon Z system at B&H Photo.

Distortion correction guarantees a loss of sharpness and micro contrast, because some of the pixels in the frame must be stretched apart. With the NikonZ 24-70/2.8, the 45 megapixel sensor of the Nikon Z7 captures as litte as 40 megapixels of detail in the most affected areas, and the losses span nearly all the zoom range, varying by degree. False claims on optical design are found in Nikon’s lens brochure “NIKKOR-Z-Brochure.pdf”:

The ultimate in optical image quality... Less Distortion

Even at their widest apertures, NIKKOR Z lenses show virtually no distortion—flare, ghosting, coma, chromatic, axial and spherical aberration are all greatly minimized.

I call on Nikon to correct the false claim in the PDF. As an additional complaint, shooting aperture is irrelevant to distortion, and conflating distortion and lateral chromatic aberration with other optical aberrations is just poor writing.

Assessing distortion with the Nikon NIKKOR Z 24-70mm f/2.8 S

These pages shows the true optical distortion of the Nikon NIKKOR Z 24-70mm f/2.8 S at 70mm, 50mm, 35mm, 28mm, 24mm. The sharpness and micro contrast losses when distortion correction is used are shown, with and without distortion correction*.
