I don't own either, but as a MFT user with IBIS (GX7) and a current SLT owner (bought my son one for learning ILC) i would bet the farm they are missing IBIS. Some E mount lenses have OIS, but not all do and using adapters omits this.

I look at it like this. When do you see the most difference in FF vs smaller sensors? When the ISO gets high. They all look good at ISO 200. And, when does ISO get high? when you are in too low of light to get the SS you need. Problem is, if you use FF without IS, in the times when you need IS most (during slower SS, like in low light), the extra ISO you HAVE to use to keep your SS high negates the advantage of larger sensors.

Not many people shoot sports in the dark, so keeping SS at 1/1000 isn't this issue. Keeping it high enough to freeze hand shake or slow subject movements is, and IBIS helps heaps with this. Most of my shooting is done at 1/50 - 1/100 in lower light and i never get camera shake blur. If i hadn't IBIS for my most used non stabilized lenses, my ISO would be a stop or two higher.
