Thanks for replying!

So, did you use autofocus to assist manual focus? Does the Milvus have the function and let you use autofocus as an assistant?

No, there is not autofocus with the Zeiss lens. It all came down to careful examination of the rear LCD (on the 5D III). I sold it and switched to a Sony a7r iii recently which allows me to use its custom programs for critical manual focus. I don't know what the 5D IV has in its programs to assist you. I can assure you that when done right the Zeiss lens is pure magic!
