Is your 85GM updated to latest firmware?

Seems better now after updating to ver 2, many thanks for reminding me !

I can't really say that it beats eyeAF accuracy (or speed) on the adapted Nikon 105/1.4E, but it's now as good and I can't emphasise enough how accurat eyeAF is...it's amazing..

Yes it has it's weaknesses, seems that at least on A9 it's quite doable to pick a face, but still it's a bit jumpy which eye is picked and doesn't seem to help pointing your flexible spot on a specific eye (method used to pick face). So  there is still room for improvement 

Kind Rgds, Peter
