Image Stabilizer during video (5DII)
You hit the nail on the head. You can hear the IS operating and it is annoying. Now, if you get an external mic for the hotshoe and put a dead cat on it you should be fine.
The only immediate disadvantage I seem to see is the sound of the IS operating and is very audible in playback.
