" I edited my post after you quoted it. I have now found that my R5 & lens will lock the IS lenses in center position only if 1) the lens is connected to the R5, and 2) the R5 is ON, and 3) the lens stabilizer switch is OFF."
OK, now it makes sense, it's why I asked you if the lens is attached to the camera and if the IS is OFF: the lens needs an energy for what ever actions it performs (I don't include the manual focusing off course) and it takes it from the camera. If the IS is ON it will do what it has to do - compensating the movement of the lens...

" EDIT: I will contact CPS once again tomorrow before deciding to ship it back to where purchased. Hopefully they will be able to check with a copy while I'm on the phone, they way they can during more normal times! (Right now "only Mondays and Thursdays.")
I think it's the right move. There are many variables that may apply to what you are seeing (like the type of the AF you are using, wind, changing light and contrast e.t.c.). On other hand you already mention that the results are "fine". If just one single element is not locked down when IS is OFF I have no idea what kind of photos you will get - at least you should see some (or severe!) decentering. If the IS is ON - should be the same (but I'm not an expert in this - just following my logic).

I know this isn't the right thread to go into much detail, but I wasn't sure it was worth starting a new thread for what is probably a defect. However, one reason Canon Rumors has value is because, in this age when we cannot examine high-end gear before purchasing, or simply go to a shop to compare what we have to others, we can only reach out and ask other owners, several of whom are posting now in this thread.
So, while it may seem humorous or anxiety provoking to some who don't want to hear about defective gear, I think CR does get more visits because we can ask other members questions about how to use gear--and whether it might be having problems.
This is not the right thread for discussing defective gear. So, either start a new one or add your comments to the one you have started about cancelling your order for the 100-500mm for the obvious reasons that you are burying your discussion in an inappropriate thread where it will be missed by many and you are taking a long-established running thread off topic.

Here are two of many, camera and lens were in the house, nest was on fence, across drive, so they were never disturbed. watched from eggs to leaving nest, the stronger of the four ended up evicting two of the four. Watched the survivors eventually leave and abandon the nest.

The second one is quite a wonderful "Happy Family Portrait" :)

Tomorrow will be a New Year, and I hope you will all have a happy one and be safe!

Here are a few more, the large group of Cardinals is one of my favorites. Not a great photo by any means, I looked out the kitchen window, and there they were, surrounding the feeders, I grabbed the only camera close and grabbed a few frames, then they were off.

Happy "virus free" New Year to all!!
