BIF using CAF with Canon 400/5.6 and metabones

This lens will produce great results i S-AF but up until the other day I never really got any satisfying results in C-AF (I have mostly used it with the E-M1 Mark 1 so far).

I gave it a new try the other day with the E-M1 Mark 2 after updating the metabones FW to version 2.8. When activating all AF points and AF tracking loosest it started to deliver some acceptable results.

The AF acquisition is not exactly lightning fast and will keep in focus for a few seconds before losing track, and you should not expect more that 2 or 3 fps. The setup has its limitations but still...

I was in a hide with limited overview of what was happening in the sky and got caught by surprise by the Osprey, it was already too close when I spotte it and by then it had already filled the frame:
