Re: How limiting is lack of image stabilization in Pany bodies?

Hi Len,

I think it's reasonable to go with a Panny body so long as you can work around this limitation (lack of IS with legacy and non-OIS lenses). With that said, I chose Oly specifically because of IBIS when picking a dslr system and when selecting my first µ4/3 camera.

Conservatively, it gives an extra one to two stops that become a distinct advantage in a lot of scenarios. Good high-ISO performance has made lack of IS a problem less often, but I've learned to leverage IBIS in situations I'd not bother to shoot otherwise.

Many fine OIS lenses are available, but you can rest assured wide and superwide won't typically be aming them. So a lot of the answer depends on your gear and your goals.

Good luck!

Rick
