A7s ii 28-70mm clear zoom stopped working.

A7s ii 28-70mm g series clear zoom stopped working.
And I've tried resetting and everything. Nothing's bringing the feature back.

Did you check file type (JPEG) and size (M or S)? Is it set to "optical zoom only"?

Its always been set to RAW and has always worked.  I switched it to JPEG(every size) and it says "OPITCAL ZOOM ONLY" .No matter what size I set it to. 


Ive always used the zoom feature, its not letting me now.

Set the camera to JPEG only and JPEG size Small. In RAW and RAW&JPEG the Zoom option is not available (on my a7r2).

Re: A7s ii 28-70mm clear zoom stopped working.

Maybe im describing a different feature. Im talking about zooming into my monitor /finder to see where my focus is.

I usually press a zoom key to zoom in on a area, and play with the focus. I thought i was always able to do this using my camera... :/ Am I going crazy? And I just never did that?

Re: A7s ii 28-70mm clear zoom stopped working.

 believe what you're referring to is Focus Magnifier or MF Assist. Perhaps you customized your camera so that one of these features was assigned to a custom button.
