That's indeed a very helpful reply OC.

Do you know whether Canon EF 100 2,8 USM (non L, IS) has a distance encoder? Haven't been able to look that up. And if it doesn't, that means 3 axis stabilization, correct?

Yes, according to this list at Bob Atkins:

Several Sigma A-mount lenses I have had that are supposed to have distance encoders give very inaccurate/useless data. I learned this because current A-mount cameras can display focus distances live. I wouldn't trust third-party lenses until proven. The third-party EF adapters need to pass that data on accurately too.

Sony stores the focus distance as a magnification factor in the EXIF.
