AFAIK only the version 1 IS lenses like the 300 f/4 IS suffer from the tripod problem. I used to own a 300 f/4 IS and when I put that lense on a tripod I had to turn off IS because if I didn't then the IS would make the viewfinder image move while using the tripod. As soon as I'd start tripod.


After working through my pictures i found that the 100-400 IS
new version still has this problem.
Took some shots from a tripod of a croc playing for dead
None of the shot are sharp.

There are two versions of the IS 100-400. The older ones indeed have that problem, the newer ones not.

I got my (new) 100-400 last week; breaking the habits of a lifetime, I read the instruction book and it says that IS should turned off if the camera is on a tripod.

I will check the instruction books in the future
Otherwise it could cost me my ticket to fame
