a7Rii + MB IV + Canon 300/2.8 ii
1

I had an assignment this morning where I used this combo. I tested it out yesterday and went with it. I could not believe how well the latest FW update on the MetaBones really improved the AF-C. I took my 1DX as support but I had no time to switch if something went wrong. More of a security blanket I couldn't use.

It paid off using the Sony. Fair to poor indoor lighting with a mostly static subject. I wish we had a native 300/2.8 in FE mount and then I would not have hesitated with the Sony.

Also, I'm very glad I did NOT introduce the Canon 1.4x tele convertor. Testing results were less than stellar but that is to be expected in this case.

Can't post photos due to client contract but it turned out fantastic. Thought I would report.
