R5 IBIS delay before 100% stabilization?

Curious if others have the same experience. If I handhold the R5 with IBIS on, and just focus on a static object, it takes around 3-5 seconds to get really good stabilization.

It looks like some stabilization prior to that, but with some floating. So I assume it's just running through an algorithm in that time to obtain the super good stabilization. It's only an issue sometimes with subjects like small birds that hop around on branches and don't sit still too long.

I tried on RF 100-500, EF 100-400, and an EF 24-70. All had similar delay until the really good lock. Thanks for any insight to your experiences with IBIS!

Have you upgraded to all latest firmware? I just installed 1.5 on my R6 and it is now AWESOME!

Yes I have firmware 1.5.2 installed. There is still the 3 to 5 second "floating" or searching before full stabilization on my R5. Are you saying that you used to have this experience on the R6 but now it is gone after the firmware update?
