Does eye focus work well with this lens on the eos R? I need a decent 85. The cannon version is much cheaper but old design. Isthe Tamron worth it?

Go for it! I never have to look at any 85mm again after I got the Tamron 85mm 1.8 because quite frankly, it's an almost perfect portrait lens for me.

My Tamron 35mm f/1.8 VC has major metering issues on the R, have you noticed anything like that with the 85mm? I think it is linked to the corrections issue mentioned elsewhere.

For you that's not a relevant question, as you where going to sell the R.  Just mount that Tamron 35mm f/1.8 VC on your M6mkII "cuz that camera will give you better IQ compared to the R"

If your facts are different we could save the peace just by calling it copy to copy variation.
