Looking for feedback on the following EF lenses on the R5 please

Hello,
Can you guys provide some experiences with the following:
Sigma 14-24mm F2.8

Tamron 15-30mm F2.8 (G1 or G2)
Canon EF 70-200mm 2.8 II

Canon 16-35mm F2.8 II

Tamron SP 35mm 1.4 
For example how good is the Eye AF on the 70-200mm and AF overall?
I am guessing I cannot expect 20fps from adapted lenses or is it possible?
Thank you!!

I have the 70-200/2.8 III. This is the same lens as the II, except with different coatings on the glass. Anyway, it works great with the R5. Eye AF works as it's supposed to, and AF speed is good (as the R5 uses the EF protocol natively). Having tested it, yes, I can get 20 fps, although I don't happen to shoot at 20 fps very much at all personally.

Ed.: There are many EF lenses Canon confirms can do 12fps mechanical/20fps electronic, see: https://support.usa.canon.com/kb/index?page=content&id=ART177344

Thanks so much for the link and the feedback. 
So good that the R5 performs so good with EF lenses, really gives a lot of options

I own the Sigma 14-24mm and the Canon 70-200mm 2.8 II and both are excellent on the R5.
