Hello,
i would like to know if anybody here ever tried a Canon 180mm f3.5 macro on a R5 or R6?
If so, how did the AF behave?
thanks for helping ;)

I've tried it on an R5 and AF is precise, but glacial as ever :/ The IBIS gives me more keepers, but is very weak for my usage. The 180mm shines in crop mode, so easy to get 'close' to things while staying far away :)

It focuses well, but is a slow focusing lens (speed-wise). Mine is the same way, it works great but is slow to focus compared to more modern lenses.
