Another thread refers to something about EFV showing IBIS when the focus is half pressed. I'm not sure what that means exactly. If it means the EVF view is steady like the view through stabilized lenses, I'll be getting the new model sooner than planned. I prefer the stabilized few of stabilized lenses when using long zoom.

That's what it means.  When you half press the shutter, the steady shot activates and its effect will be visible through the viewfinder.  Previous Sony cameras, A77 and A99 included, did not do this and only activated the steady shot once the shutter was fully pressed, and thus not visible in the viewfinder.
