Lens VR -- how does the camera body know and compensate?
Dec 31, 2011

How does the camera body know if the lens used provides any type or VR (especially third-party ones), and if so, what level of VR (how many stops)? Does the body detect the model/maker of the lens and then use its local database to make adjustments? Thanks.
