Zeiss обещает проверять совместимость с Eye-AF каждого нового объектива до его выпуска на рынок

The lens worked perfectly — said Pollman. — In principle, when using the Eye-AF communication with the lens is no different from the “standard” AF modes. The camera selects the best position of the group of elements used for focusing. In this case, however, they significantly differed. Therefore, we precisely tuned the control parameters of the lens and now the Eye-AF works fine. And you can be sure that in the future the mode Eye-AF will be checked with each new lens to the market!”
