A7 viewfinder

I use my Sony A7 exclusively with manual focus lenses, so the viewfinder is essential for nailing focus.

In most operations it is perfectly serviceable but I like macro photography and when the lens is stopped down to get DOF the amount of light inevitably drops. The problem is that the frame rate drops to about 3fps and makes precise handheld focussing really difficult.

My question is this....since the price of the A7rii has dropped a lot due to newer models coming out, does this model have a better frame rate when things get dark or is it still horrendous?
