So they can make some extra bucks.

I am not convinced by Sony IBIS/Digital stab or whatever it is for video, some random fluttering going on and any minor movements causes frame break-up, the af is almost uselesss for video as there is far too much going on for the processor to deal with! Therefore if we look to the new breed of Sigma with OIS built-in, oh Sony asked us to disable it, what! So we have a great evf for videoing with but we are stuck with Sony's useless IBIS for video, this stinks big time. I'll the tracking today but if I cant use it due to poor stabilisation and random stuff going on this camera is going back.
