| p.3 #9 · OM-D E-M5 or NEX-6 - Which would you pick? |
I don't know why anyone would compare the Sony DSLR IBIS to the OM-D. That is not what the NEX uses, it uses OSS in the lenses. I've had both and it seems to me they are basically equal with the lenses I've tried.
because mawz was talking about his experience with IBIS in general. IBIS is obviously an advantage for still shooters over OSS because IBIS covers every lens.
Indeed I was, I also prefer IBIS to OSS for exactly that reason. Of course like sebboh, I am not exactly over-equipped with native lenses (ZA 24 only in my case), preferring to shoot adapted lenses better suited to my tastes than Sony's offerings.
oly's IBIS is much more useful and effective than sony's in my experience. i have steady hands and found oly's to be very helpful while sony's dslr IBIS didn't help me much.
I have to disagree, for my shooting IBIS only really comes in handy when I'm already down around 1/15 in terms of shutter speed, I might get a stop out of it at best because at 1/8 or below no IS system can keep up.
i have to completely disagree with you here – i had no problem regularly getting pixel sharp images at 100mm equiv at 1/5 of a second and 35mm equiv at 1/2 of a second with oly's IBIS. I could even count on getting at least one shot in burst perfectly sharp at 700mm equiv and 1/20 of a second.
My experience is different there, I've found a hard floor at 1/8-1/6 where IS in general quits offering any advantages. I can get usable, even sharp shots at those speeds with and without IS. Given that 135mm equivalent is my general limit in lens length and I'm a lot more likely to be shooting in the 35-75mm-e range then IS only really has a small window of advantage for me, especially since I'm doing significantly less low-light shooting.
