Re: Question about MF

I guess I have three questions:

1) Is the lens IS tied to autofocus?

No.

2) If I switch to MF, does the IS in my lens still work?

Yes.

3) If you are using MF, does it make a difference turning off the IS when using a tripod?

Not entirely sure.

Traditional advice is to always turn IS off when using a tripod, although various sources I've read (eg. Ken Rockwell) say most IS systems are smart enough to notice when they are on a tripod and turn off automatically.

I always turn IS off just to be safe.
