How is the 500pf with Z bodies? Regarding AF and stabilizer, does it benefit from the IBIS in any way?

I find the 500mm PF works pretty well on the FTZ. AF operates normally, and the camera IBIS works in conjunction with the lens VR to provide greater stabilisation that you would get with lens or camera alone.

These were both taken with the lens on a Z7, hand-held...

I actually had the 500 PF but I couldn't justify the cost. I sold it as I already had the Sigma 150-600mm that I was happy with image quality wise, especially at 600mm. I was hoping that the Z mount telephoto would be coming soon. I am leaning towards just picking up the D500 again and just use it with the Sigma until this equipment shortage is over.
