Canon r5 back focusing - micro AF adjustment missing???


I have a brand new Canon R5. I noticed a horrible back focusing with my 35mm 1.4 Mark I. lens.
I have tried to micro-adjust focusing but apparently there is no option for micro-adjust AF in the menu... ?????
Anybody facing the same problem????

You shouldn't have to micro adjust as the AF/MF is read directly from the sensor and doesn't need adjusting. It seems like the EF 35mm f/1.4 might be de-centered instead. Try another lens to check AF and MF. EF lenses work great on the R's, so much that I sold my RF 50mm 1.2. If it is still out of AF/MF, the sensor might be the culprit.
