I've found that my lenses have required less tweaking as I've moved from the 5D II to III to IV. My old faithful 24-105 L developed the notorious error 1 a few years ago and needed some minor adjustment after repair, but nothing too drastic. Otherwise none of my lenses are currently adjusted.

I am not saying that I never needed MA on any body (I did) but I never needed it on my 5D4, with nine lenses. OK, one of them was fisheye.

Yes, I will say the 5D4 has required far less MFA than my other bodies.  I've never had the 5D3, but compared to my 7D2 and 6D it has been excellent.  I think only a couple of my lenses have MFA, and it's very minor.
