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

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

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

Thanks !


As to whether you "need" to update your Metabones - don't know.

But since the IV is user-updateable - you probably should.

(I assume when you said "update" you meant "firmware update".  If you meant replace with the V - not any point unless you REALLY want that indicator light and the extra button/switch.  The IV and V firmwares are functionally identical other than that light and switch.)

The third-gen FF bodies had significant improvements in AF capability with legacy adapters (such as Metabones in "green" mode).
