Metabones iv ef to e focusing issues

Hey guys,

I have a metabones iv adapter and bought a few canon fit lenses but I am disappointed in focusing accuracy.

I am using:

Canon 200mm f2.8Lii

Sigma 85mm f1.4 art

Both the lenses do front or back focusing, canon does this about 3-4 out 10 times and Sigma does it about 6-7 times out of 10 so sigma is kind of useless really.

I see everyone praising metabones and say lenses work like sony native but it's very frustrating to see this.

Is this normal adapter behaviour or something wrong with mine? It has latest firmware.

I am done with adapters and will buy native lenses or will keep the lenses and buy a 5DSR.

Any suggestions on how to make my life easier?
