Does Canon lens stabilisation work when using MC-11 adapter?

Considering buying some Canon glass and an MC-11 adapter. I was just wondering does the lens stabilisation work with the MC-11 Adapter? Also how well does the Canon 70-200 f2.8L Lens work on an A7 III? Well enough for moving subjects using AF-C?

So, if you get the IS version of the Canon 70-200mm F2.8 Series, the lens stabilization will work but not the same way it would on a Canon body. If you mounted that lens on a canon body that has IBIS (In Body Image Stabilization), the lens would be used as an additional axis of stabilization. On a sony body, that would not be the case. It would work less efficiently and minimal difference would be shown.

The AF-C is pretty good so far but I have to test it a little bit more before making a judgement. According to DXOMark, The non-IS has better picture quality than the IS version. I have the non-IS and still need to use it more to analyze consistent picture quality.

I think both Stabilization and Image Quality are barely distinguishable. If I were you, I'd get the Non-IS because it has slightly better picture quality, the IS makes little to no difference, and it is cheaper to get the Non-IS. Ill try sending a few images once I have them ready.

    • Hi, Last year I switched from Nikon to Sony (A7Cm2) and this situation surprised me in an unpleasant way. When I travel, I record rather short 8-30 seconds clips, a lot of such clips. And found that these files are rather big because of rounded up to the nearest ~32MB. Different SD cards (64GB) fill up very quickly because of that behavior. Sample sizes for different durations of those clips, for example I have 700 clips with these "distinctive" sizes +/-, nothing in between 33,592,255 67,149,921 100,706,705 134,367,160 167,821,451 201,378,823 234,936,491 268,594,590 302,050,059 335,709,042 ... and so on +/-1000 for the smaller files up to +/-100,000 for the bigger ones rounded up to the nearest ~32MB  Different 64GB cards were formatted inside the camera with exFAT (allocation unit size is 128KB) Why is that? Is there some setting for that?  -- Piotr
    • In short: AF micro adjustment isn't needed in mirrorless cameras, so the option is irrelevant. In DSLRs, the focus module is in a different light path than the photosensitive plane. Minuscule differences in the lengths of these paths can be compensated for with AF Micro adjustment. In mirrorless cameras, the photosensitive plane also contains the focus points. So whenever the camera detects proper focus acquisition, the focus is also exactly on the photosensitive plane. That is, until you use an LA-EA4 adapter to mount your 500mm f/4 onto your A1, which uses its own AF module instead of the cameras AF system. I would strongly advise against going this route: you'll have a state of the art camera with an insanely good AF system, and then you dismiss it 'in favour of' a very dated and compromised AF mechanism. Better try the LA-EA5 if you really want to keep using your old lens.   Edit: apparently autofocus doesn't even work with the LA-EA4 on the A1. https://support.d-imaging.sony.co.jp/www/cscs/accessories/compatibility.php?area=gb&lang=en&mdl=ILCE-1&cat=7
    • Hi Everyone !! I intend to move to Sony A1 from Sony A99 ii. I plan to continue to use the Sony F4 500 G lens (A mount lens) with an adapter on the Sony A1. However, I cannot find the menu option to do the AF Micro Adj in the Sony A1.  In the Sony A99ii it was under the AF3 menu.
