So I switched to the Eos R from the Sony A7iii mostly for the colors and ergonomics. I still love those but I am getting more annoyed with the AF tracking and Eye af of the R. I knew it wouldn’t be quite at the Sony level, but I feel like it’s further off than I expected. I have the RF 35mm f1.8, the Sigma 35mm art and the Canon EF 135mm f2. I notice focus tracking issues the most on the 135mm. Would an RF lens like the 85mm or 24-105mm or 70-200 likely be better at tracking and eye Af than my 135mm f2 adapted?

Did not see any difference myself.

Its not Sony by any stretch. But it not useless either - at all.

Should think Canon will get a lot closer to Sony AF with the next generation of bodies (I hope).
