got the 6dii and 24-105 L IS 2.

When you are shooting landscape, city, sports .. at 1/125 or faster .. do you keep IS switched on ?

Is IS on good or bad at those fastet shuttet speeds ?

I could probably count on one hand the number of times I have turned off IS on a lens in the last 10 years - that includes everything from EF-M 11-22mm right up to 100-400L ii, and includes both versions of the 24-105L.

Even on a tripod I don't turn it off. Most of the modern (probably last 10-15 years) Canon lenses detect the use of a tripod automatically.

I have used IS on shutter speeds from 1 second (handheld) to 1/8000th.
