    You can read Jordan's report on Canon lenses with Metabones on A7 II:.

    I have the Metabones IV along with an A7II and an A7RII.
    I also have several Canon mount lenses. Mostly Canon along with a Sigma 150 Macro.
    For the most part the Metabones IV and A7II work well. Certain lenses focus more slowly. Many of them focus nearly as well as on a Canon or an FE lens on the A7. A couple of the lenses focus as quickly as the FEs.

    I've not taken the time to do a detailed test.

    I also have a Fotodiox adapter that works well with a much smaller number of lenses on the A7II and A7RII.

    Bottomline is that it depends on the lens.

    Brian Smith's testing and list are probably as reliable a resource as any.
