Nice shots, please can you tell me how accurate is the eye af with the Canon 70-200 F4LIS thanks

Unfortunately I used MF ­čś░because I have A7 1st gen.

One thing to mention though is that while M Focusing I could see rectangles around the eyes of people in the frame, so I guess this camera could be capable in some way to eye AF if only Sony released the firmware enabling PDAF with adapted lenses.

Also I should mention I was capable to get more shots in focus than I expected, though I would not recommend of course to operate in this way. I plan at some point to get a73 while keeping a71 for small size with FE primes and maybe carry 2 bodies for events like this.

Finally some word of praise to the EF 70-200/4 IS, I really loved the colors and contrast out of camera, it's almost like a prime. Here are 2 carnival portraits from same parade. (I recommend to see to enlarged image)
