I don't think there must be a reason. It could have been an unexpected result, ie a bug but a bug they decided not to fix or would have cost too much to fix.
No other mirrorless from other manufacturers do this. Obviously IS always on is not required as 2 of the 4 RF lenses that exist do not even have IS.

It's a PITA to have to turn off IS (or even think about it). There is a reason somewhere. If it was some sort of bug they would have fixed it before releasing the R.

Is this an obvious attempt to discourage the use of EF lens sooner than later since this isn't an issue with the new RF lenses with IS? Annoying, Canon.

Checking in from Wisconsin :)

Took the R and control ring adapter, with my 50L and 100-400II + 1.4xIII. Also brought my Fuji X100F.

Haven’t gotten a chance to do much birding thanks to a sinus cold and familial obligations, so the 1-4 has pretty much stayed in the bag. The 50L is so supremely satisfying to use, it’s been glued on the R since I brought it home. With the control ring adapter providing EC, and being able to clearly see exposure and DOF, it’s a completely new shooting experience. What a dream.

Here’s a portrait of my grandma. One take, with only some highlights adjusted in post on Photoshop Express on my iPhone.

One thing I wanted to ask you all about: there’s been more than a few instances where, when bringing the camera out of sleep, that there’s no AF point on screen. The camera will still attempt focus if I hit the AF button, but it won’t lock into anything. I have to turn the camera off and back on to get the point to display again. Any ideas?

This behaviour started with the M3.

So far my solutions are:

1/ Close the flippin flippy screen. IS then activates for 5 seconds after shutter button half press.
2/ Assign a button to turn the LCD off. IS then stops after 1 second.

Option 2 seems the least objectionable but a light touch on the M-Fn bar wakes it up. It's also a waste of a customisable button.

The most strange aspect of this feature IMHO is that it disables Mode 3 IS.

Newly Added IS Mode 3: The new IS II super-telephoto lenses are the first to introduce Canon’s new IS Mode 3. This new stabilization mode is similar to IS Mode 2 in the respect that it can detect and correct for panning by shutting off IS correction in the panning direction, but the difference is that IS correction occurs only during the actual exposure in IS Mode 3.

I tested this a while back and just now to make sure I wasn't losing my mind.

This is what happens on mine when * is pressed. * was configured for "Display off"

  • RF 24-105L - IS noise continued
  • EF 28-300L and 100-400L - IS noise stopped

As you and Jeff mentioned, just touching the M-Fn bar reactivates the LCD even when the M-Fn bar is disabled.

Also the IS noise on the RF 24-105L continued regardless of the position of the IS switch on the lens itself. So it is using battery even though there is no stabilization. Constant AF was disabled at the time so it isn't AF noise.

I don't think so because IS on EF lenses work as expected. On EF lenses IS turns off when the LCD is blank or the IS switch is off.

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.

Oh. I had it backwards. -?

About loading Mojave? I tried to load it back when it first came out, but I had an error and couldn't get it to load, so actually forgot about it. Had to call apple tech (they where awesome) and they had me delete the installer I had loaded and reinstall it again fixed the problem.

Are you loading your pictures with PS now?

The pictures weren't great, but I knew they wouldn't be. I had a terrible time with the auto-focus point but I realized after I left the store I think my nose was touching the screen. EVF wasn't giving my a real representation of exposure and I couldn't move the focus point with my thumb on the screen. Oh well I'll know better next time I'm at the store.

I no longer use a program to import my images... I move them manually to an external hard drive then import to Lightroomcc. I don't loose track of images this way. Once imported into LRcc all images are present and accounted for and right where I left them.. Not seeing the raw is not a big deal for me really. I have never tried the screen for moving points.. I went straight to the Dpad.

So I had the 100-400 on the R for a bit today. I had one repeatable problem, though not something likely to be an issue in regular use. I went from shooting near MFD at 400mm and directly pointed it out the window at something far away, it went out to 3m and then stopped and just turned the red box on the screen indicating no focus. I found a few easy workarounds. Bump the manual focus ring past the 3m point and it focus's. Focus on something 5m away first, then off in the distance. Zoom to 300, focus, then zoom to 400. Just an odd little quirk I thought.

Randy to have two ranges on your lens and a switch.. change your range from full to infinity. Maybe that will fix your problem.
