Really Sharp - but Zoom Creeps on Carry

This is a really - really sharp lens and I have gotten some great shots with it with my A7R2 and A6500.

There are just a few minuses

1. The adjuster for zoom tightness still allows for zoom creep on carry - not as good as the Canon 100-400 Mk II where you can virtually lock it down. This is a real annoyance at times and I wish there was a fix for this.

2. The image stabilization in the lens in combination with the A7R2 and A6500 - seems to be a little less effective as on the Canon 100-400 MKII. I sold the Canon so I can't do a rigourous comparison.
