When was the last time you tested the EF 70-200 f/2.8 ii on the R5? FW updates may have fixed those issues. I recently tested it on the R3 with the 2xiii TC and got better results than I expected. I hadn’t used it in a long time since it was very slow focusing on the original R with early firmware.

It’s very fast focusing on my R. I used it recently for a local 5K, and it kept up with the fastest runners easily. That’s with the latest firmware on the R.

(It’s not a focal length that I have needed and n a few years.) I guess I should put it on the R5 and see what happens now, but won’t get to it during the holidays.

As the length of a thread approaches 150, the probability that someone will make the obvious "it's not the camera, it's the photographer" remark approaches 1.
