    From what I understand on the 5D3 single point metering only follows the central focus point.
    I believe some of the 1Dx models allow the metering to follow other focus points.

    I have the Lee Holder System for the Big Stopper (10 stops)
    But I still need step up rings for smaller lenses to adapt it.
    Is there some other system that I have not investigated?

    To further clarify the question.

    Early IS lenses did not perform well on tripods.
    This included:



    EF28-135mm f/3.5-5.6 IS USM
    EF75-300mm f/4-5.6 IS USM
    EF100-400mm f/4.5-5.6L IS USM

    Macro

    Since I turn off my IS when using a tripod.

    And if I will be using a tripod for most of my macro work.

    Does it make sense to buy a macro lens with IS, except for handheld work?

    thank you
