I have a7r3.
To me with the way this focuses , shooting an event would be frustrating.. with very little keepers ..
Like I said posed would be fine ..
It will focus .. just does a check evem after I get the green confirm
So for a second i think im good but then goes out of focus and refocuses..so I need to wait for the second confirmation beep.(greenlight)
It does this atleast half the time .. unless I go smaller aperture
I use it for weddings. I really love how 85mm looks for first dance type shots. It's money.
But yeah the lens is slow, but it's only slow when making large focus adjustments.....basically if you're swapping subjects a lot. It hasnt been a deal killer for me, but it depends on what you're contending with in the events you shoot. Weddings are pretty slow moving and really predictable.
I definitely wouldn't shoot sports with this lens, and some people use 85's for indoor sports
