did Sony bugger something up?

I blindly upgraded the FW in my 2 A7r3''s and then was disappointed. Why? After reading Lloyd Chambers blog about Sony ruining its eye-AF for the A7r3 I just did a rough test and sadly, after duplicating a few times I cannot now trust them to do Eye-Af. Here is one obvious result:

Eye-AF, Wide Area:

Eye-AF, Wide Area - (also occurs w/Flexible Spot)

Eye-Sf OFF -- Flexible spot focused directly on the eye:

Tomorrow I can try this on a few other lenses to further confirm but havr sny of you seen this behaviour? Or is it just me?

I think so too. The eye af in my a7riii seems to be more inaccurate with both my sigma 40mm f1.4 and 135mm gm....

not scientific testing but I noticed the hit rate dropped. In fact, I am thinking of switching the face/eye detect off and just use AFC flexible spot.
