Sigma DG 180mm APO MACRO F/3.5 on R5

Sigma informed today it does not recommend to use older lenses on the R5 (unless on MF):

6. For interchangeable lenses which are not from the Contemporary, Art, or Sports lines, using MF is recommended, since it may be difficult to achieve sufficient focusing speed and accuracy when AF is used.

The Sigma 180 macro works flawlessly on my 7DII, probably since the body sees it as a Canon 180 macro.

I hope the R5 will do the same. It is my favorite lens for butterflies and see no alternative (other than the Canon version with same age and quality). The Sigma 180 f/2.8 is too heavy.

Any experience ?

No R5 available here yet to test.

Canon EOS R5
