Thanks for the clarification.The reports for shuttershock are for the R7 not the high resolution R5, and it's due to the design of the shutter combined with the very high fps in EFCS and not the camera resolution. It's not due to the IBIS either because some EF lenses are immune to it. The ES modes on the R7, R5 and R3 can be used for single shots at long exposures.
Facts aside, I agree with your comments about fuss. Like life in general, you get the most out of it by doing what you are good at, avoiding what you are bad at, and finding workarounds for difficulties. These camera fusspots must be glass-half-empty critics in general. Just get the best out of your gear by making the most of it.
Would the high pixel density of the R7 play a role in making it more sensitive to less than perfect technique. I remember reading about the 5DSr having a bit of a steeper learning curve than lower MP DSLRs because any small movement would move the subject across more pixels with such a fine pixel pitch, that images were easier to blur?
I was really just wondering about the stability of a floating IBIS sensor when the whole camera body was being shaken by the shutter movement. The degree it would be moved around (perhaps none?) would determine whether it was an issue or not I guess.
It's quite interesting that some EF lenses are unaffected by it. That would suggest that the shutter shock phenomenon is some sort of an interplay between the lens and camera body then?
