I'm looking to buy the new a7riv. I already have a sony a7r first gen + metabones iv + canon lenses.

Original A7r (that I used to own) doesn't have PDAF, so most modern Canon lenses will AF much faster on A7r IV than on A7r.

I'm wondering if I will also need to update my metabones or not.

There is newer MB5 but basically the same as MB4 so you don't gain to upgrade to V. Just make sure to upgrade to the latest MB4 FW.

I can precise that I don't need AF on my canon lenses, manual focus is ok.

As said most modern Canon lenses AF fine including eye-AF or even pretty well via MB4/5 or Sigma MC-11 especially UWA and WA Canon lenses.

Thanks !
