Eh. Many reviewers, and CaNikon shooters would argue that stabilized lenses provide better performance than Sony in-body stabilization. So you can just as easily call this a disadvantage for the Sony cameras. It's not clear cut.

In-body stabilization only makes any sense whatsoever on a camera with an EVF. Not to say that it is better than optical, it's probably not - but at least with an EVF it gives a stabiized view through the viewfinder and the AF and metering are also working with a stabilized image.

Sounds like you don't know Sonys at all. They do not give a stabilized view through the viewfinder (except in video mode) because stabilization takes place only during the exposure, not before.
