I read that the Sigma 135 produces inconsistent autofocus results with both the Metabones and Sigma adapters, what is your experience in that regard?

Yes it is sharp and feels great on the camera just the right size. I will sell it and get the GM when it comes out which was the plan when I ordered it but only for the AF/MF switch and Focus button for Eye Focus and I think I will like the MF and AF better with a Sony GM. The one thing about the Batis that is good and bad is the throw is sooooooo long on MF which is nice for nailing focus but it is so long you wonder if you are turning it the right direction it is a long throw. I wish all my Sony's has a longer throw and particularly my Loxia's but not quite this long.

Outstanding lens though.

Please do not put words in my mouth. Nothing can be further from the truth.
