@ andy landzaat

Because i also have something like 260 SR/MC/MD Rokkor lenses that i will use with it so IBIS was a pre-requisite more than AF speed that i don't really care for.

I don't know what it is but even with native E-Mount lenses i often find fault with my bodies locking AF in the wrong place and i end up using MF very often.Thisi is with A7R, NEX-7, A7II, A6500 but even my A-Mount bodies are often acting up trying to focus in places i don't want them to so i got to revert to MF very often with those too.

I often laugh (but won't comment) when i see people looking for the fastest AF when i know it may be very inadequate in many situations. I prefer accurate over fast.

I wouldn't trust the a7R's autofocus with anything critical myself, and always shot in manual focus with it.

However, I photographed two events in late 2020 where for the first time, I did it all in autofocus. This was a combination of the a7Riii and the 24-105 G. It locked focus fast (face/eye detect) and got the shot in. Every time. I'm now a believer...
a77ii- Sony 135/2.8 STF, 16-50/2.8, 70-200/2.8 G
a7riii- Voigtländer 15/4.5, Zeiss Loxia 21/2.8, 35/2, 50/2, 85/2.4, Batis 85/1.8, Voigtländer 110/2.5, Sony 24-105/4 G, Sigma 100-400 f5-6.3.

@ Wētāpunga

Yes but in 2020 every event seemed to be in slow motion so AF was probably up to the task
