No in-body stabilization in Nex. Stupid!(?)

From Someone with a Slight Hand Tremor

I prefer image stabilization.
It helps me with my slight hand tremor.

I'm still buying the NEX-7.

As long as the lens is fast and the lens in the wide angle territory, I find that I don't need it.

I think it is also overrated as a correction for slight hand movement.

I've been using a Panasonic GH2 and with small fast lenses it is no problem.

Other lenses have built in IS and are very very effective, more so than in camera stabilization I've had in other cameras.

With the kit lens having stabilization and the 55-210 as well, I see no problem.

I also plan to use the very fast 25mm and given the speed of that lens, also expect no problem.

Last point. Every forum seems to get into personal or almost personal emotional attacking and defending. I don't get it. I'm sure there are good reasons to disagree with my choice and I will respect that.

I also know that some people use these forums very unprofessionally.

As a newcomer to this forum...I can still hope the tone will be better. I do have some degree of naive optimism!
