Anyone tried installing this chip? I heard image stabilization only works if you have that chip on, is that true?

From my experience with the a300, steadyshot only works if the body knows how long the lens is. (Longer lenses require more action to compensate) I expect it would be the same way today.

I've seen an Olympus camera that allowed the user to manually set the lens length for compensation. Would be nice to see Sony do the same in the future.

They can be chipped to specifically report 85mm to the camera.
