A9 with Canon 300 2.8 II?


Does anyone know of any information as to how the A9 performs with the Canon 300mm 2.8 II? (Any adapter but preferably the MC-11)

I know there is a review with the A9/MC-11/Canon 300mm 2.8 I (but not II). The II is very different than the I so I am wondering if/how it impacts A9 usage.

I have been shooting with the Canon 300 2.8 II for some time and it is very sharp. The issue is the Sony Sony 300mm f/2.8 G SSM II is not near as sharp (DXO).

I am trying get the best 300mm 2.8 combo with the A9 and 400mm is too long for what I do.

Specifically in regards to the Canon 300mm 2.8 II / MC-11 / A9 combo I am interested in how many FPS, if/how the A9 AF modes are restricted and how fast (or not) the AF is.

Any information would be helpful.
