Auto focus A7R II vs A&R IV

My current body is a A7R II. While it is doing great for anything that doesn't move, I'm having a really hard time capturing my wild squirrel buddies.

Single shot, burst, all different AF modes, the Mark 2 is always a second behind or doesn't focus on the eyes or head.

Will the Mark 4 be much better in the AF department?

My original plan was to wait for the Mark 5. Problem is, there is no release date. Sony could drop it tomorrow, or in 2 years if they are still facing a major chip shortage. If they drop any time soon, flippers will suck up everything available and sell it on eBay for 1 to 1.5k over retail price. Heck even retailer will mark them up. I have no problem paying 3.5k, but not 4.5 or 5k.

I feel like I missing out on to many great opportunities with my Mark 2.

Typical outcome when they move...
