That is not the case with the RF 24-105L lens I have. The RF IS motor continues as long as the R power switch is on regardless of the IS switch position.

So if the camera is on, the IS on the NATIVE lens is on continuously, even if the IS switch is turned off?!

The native lens still makes the whirring noise regardless of switch position for IS and AF. It appears to stop stabilizing when the IS switch is off but still makes the whirring noise. So it is using battery.

We had some discussion on this back on page 33 of this thread - https://photography-on-the.net …showthread.php?​p=18744540

There is also reference to a possibly explanation here - https://www.dpreview.c​om/forums/thread/43202​63 (external link) - "Canon EF-M lenses use a different IS mechanism compared to EF and EF-S lenses. If you remove power from an EF or EF-S lens, the IS mechanism settles in a home position. With EF-M lenses, the IS mechanism will flop around if power is removed. Turning off the IS with an EF-M lens just tells the lens to hold the mechanism in the home position instead of correcting vibration and will still consume power. My guess is the new RF lenses are built the same as the EF-M lenses."

That is interesting.

We visited the Mount Cootha Botanic Gardens in Brisbane and the (relatively) small form factor of the EOS R / 100-400mm F5.6L Mk II combo saw me slip it into my Think Tank Holster as a walk about system - just in case, as it was a social outing.;-)a

When my wife and (non-photography) friends see the EOSR, they think its not a serious camera compared to the 5D Mk IV so don't mind me taking the occasional snap.:-)

Here we have an Eastern Water Dragon and an Australasian Grebe.

Cheers

Dennis

A slightly different take on a Canon 50mm 1.2...

And the 100-400 doesn't look like a serious camera?? lol

Surprisingly (and thankfully) my wife has never seemed to notice the difference between my old 5D4 and my new EOS R. :). Haven't given her much chance yet to see the 100-400 vs the 70-200. They are both "big" and "white," right?

Hah - nestled in the small of my back (on a Think Tank belt) the Think Tank Digital Holster 30 is quite inconspicuous and the 100-400 without the hood, looks less imposing.:-)

Another thing I REALLY like about the R, it seems much easier to connect to my iPad than my 80D or 5D4.

Inspired by Ponrader, I decided to go out today to snap some wildlife pics...

Really surprised by the variety of animals you can see when you just take your time and observe.
