A7/R with EF 40/2.8 STM using MB III?

Anyone uses the "Canon EF 40mm f/2.8 STM" lens on A7/R with Metabones III adapter?  Does the aperture control and AF works (slowly)? Can't find the relevant info on Metabones' website.

It's $199 new, a nice little pancake, STM for video, can use on my Canon bodies, and adapted on my A7R . . . (one lens, four bodies)

Thanks in advance. . . . Steven

Yes, it's slow but works fine on my a7R/Metabones III.

It works ok with MBIII and probably 'would' be one of my favourite lenses on the A7, but the manual fly-by-wire focus is horrible sadly. Otherwise it is an excellent little lens.
