In the 1/4, 1/6, 1/8, 1/12, 1/15 shutter speed ranges, moving a mirror and
diaphragm WILL cause unsharp photographs in ANY camera (any camera that
does that). Especially with long lenses. Tripod or not! The longer the
lens, the worse the problem.

MLU is an essential part of professional photography.

To ignore it is un-professional.
