R7 IBIS--wow!
4

I have never had a camera with IBIS, before the R7, though I've had plenty of IS lenses. I just tried out the IBIS on the R7 with my RF 50 F1.8, which doesn't have IS. All I can say is 'wow!'. Here is a 100% crop from the center of a handheld shot at 1/15:

And here's the same (approximate) view at a full second, also handheld:

I very much doubt whether I'll want to take many handheld exposures at 1 second with this lens, but it's still pretty amazing what modern IBIS systems can do. I can see this being useful with a wide angle lens (perhaps my RF 16 F2.8) to get flowing water nicely blurred while keeping the rest of the scene sharp. I've done that at 1/2 second with my 11-22 IS on my M6II. I think I could easily use a full second with my RF 16 on my R7.
