Like others in this thread my experience with EF on my R, RP and R6 bodies has been extremely positive. I'd add that my Sigma 50 Art is also a joy to use via the adapter - in fact I only bought that lens once I knew I'd finally be safe from the old Sigma AF lottery.

One thing that's worth noting - depending on how you shoot - is that using certain older EF lenses may hobble the H and H+ burst modes, at least when there's mechanical shutter involvement (full mechanical, EFCS).

For example, I only get around 6/7 fps with my 135L & 85 f/1.8. The same was true with my original 70-200 f/4 L IS USM. Newer lenses typically get the full burst rate,  e.g. 70-200 f/2.8 L  IS USM II, 35 f/2 IS USM, 24-70 f/2.8 L II. Interestingly the Sigma 50 Art also seems to get the full burst rate.
