I haven’t had a chance to really test the IBIS on the 400mm f/5.6, the autofocus works great. One bummer is that you will lose the 20fps frame rate. I measured it to be somewhere around 8-10 FPS.

Thanks for that real world info. The youtube mentions the 400/5.6 and in yet another vid he says is slows down, but nothing quantitative.

Like many I'm waiting on an R5. I'll be using it with the 400DOii and the 400/5.6. I think I can live with 10fps for the days when weight really matters.

Now please let me ask. The 8-12 fps you are seeing with the 400/5.6, mechanical right? or ES, or both?
