I am new member and it is my first post.

I performed a simple non-scientific comparison of the effect of O.I.S, IBIS and both using Panasonic 14-140 lens/Olympus E-PL1.

Aperture priority, F8.0, 1/15 to 1/25, 140mm, ISO 200, handheld.
Four combination - no IS, IBIS, O.I.S, both

3 still subject outside, distance 7, 15 and 50 feet. Shot 3, 3 and 4 times, 10 all together for each combination.

Evaluate sharpness as bad (could not be saved in post-processing), satisfactory (could be saved), good.

No IS – 6 bad, 3 satisfactory, 1 good;
IBIS – 3 bad, 4 satisfactory, 3 good;
O.I.S - 1 bad, 3 satisfactory, 6 good;
Both - 7 bad, 2 satisfactory, 1 good.

Yes, non-scientific and subjective, but looks very convincing to me.
