Dale: do you mean despite the IBIS?

Hi folks,

I just posted an article regarding the Canon 400 5.6 adapted to the Sony A7R2. Hope it adds to the available information on this combination.

Interesting read and it tallies well with all I know about the EF 400/5.6L. However, you wrote there: " I can hand hold and zoom to 5X and refocus but it is impossible for me to keep the image in view at 12X." Was this operating with IBIS on, that your VF image was too jumpy to focus accurately at 12x free handed?
