Re: Question about MF

From what I've read, the image stabilization in your lens fights with the autofocus in your camera; and the reason your turn off IS when mounted on a tripod, is that you want your camera to be completely motionless.

But if I have disabled the autofocus by switching to MF, what does the image stabilization have to fight with? Surely the electronic IS can't reach up and manually turn your focus ring.

My thinking is that if you are on a tripod, and your turn on the manual focus on your lens, you don't have to mess with the IS switch at all.
