Sony A7R II IBIS (In Body Image Stabilization) Destroys Sharpness on a Tripod

A few years back I reported on damage to sharpness from Sony IBIS when used on a tripod. At that time, I thought it was only at longer shutter speeds: 1+ seconds. But I am fastidious about disabling IBIS (SteadyShot) when on a tripod.

This image was one of a panorama, thus gapping it and rendering the entire series worthless. Two of the six images of the panorama were blurred this way; I forgot to turn off SteadyShot (IBIS). Operator error.

But at least I can complain about one thing Sony can and ought to fix: that distracting flashing shutter speed warning icon shown at lower shutter speeds, all while I’m working on a tripod, and no way to turn it off.
