    Tried the MC-11 with the Sigma 40/1.4 (on A7RIV) and 35/1.4 (on A7SIII)... they work decently for all modes of AF, but get kinda clacky noise-wise.

    I've been fiddling for a while using a Ronin-S mounted B-camera on a tripod or slider, using their fairly rudimentary action tracking capability. It's biggest problem is stability at the moment.
