A poster on another forum told me that the IS is in the lens and the autofocus is in the camera. He also said that when you flip the switch and turn on MF, it disables the IS.

What say you?

That's incorrect for canon DSLRs. All canon DSLRs have AF built into the lens, not the body.

Some brands (eg. nikon, pentax) have AF built into the bodies. (the lowest range nikons don't have AF built in, and so are incompatible with some older nikon lenses.

He also recommended turning off the IS when mounting the camera on the tripod.


If the IS has been disabled when switching to MF, why would I nee to also turn off IS?

As far as I know (a.k.a. canon) that's incorrect.
