What you DO get:

5. Autofocus hunts more than native lenses, but its not bad.

6. It's better with wideish adapted lenses, lke 16-35/4 and 24-70/2.8 and 24-70/4LII. Definitely good with 70-200L/2.8 II.

7. Eye AF works!! and pretty well with adapted lens, too.

Which adapter are you using? With my adapter (the metabones 4), some lenses don’t work at all (EF50/1.4, Sigma 70-200/2.8), some provide EyeAF but some do not. Maybe the sigma adapter is better.

My friend lent me his Metabones 4 and MC-11 adapters. The Sigma MC-11 is the clear winner, in my opinion.

It's even cheaper!

I can't test my EF50/1.4... because the usm focus ring is stuck... again... lol. I know how to disassemble and fix it myself, but am too lazy to.

I’m not surprised given the resources available to metabones. I’d consider getting the sigma but in the last couple years I’ve acquired native lenses. I still adapt my macro and 16-35/4, where AF isn’t particularly concerning.
