Wondering if Sony cameras (specifically A7III / 16-35 f/4) will detect tripod, or do I have to disable stabilization in the menu? (lens OS and IBIS together) thanks

Lenses & cameras cannot detect tripods; you need to turn off image stabilization on your own.

It might be something else but when I mounted my A7III with my 100-400 (could have been the 200-600, I'm not sure) on a tripod and used focus magnifier the screen was stabilized to some point when the image got shaky again as the vibration of the tripod got less. So I suspect with only a small amount of vibration the IS gets turned off.
