Re: Does Sony force Sigma to disable OS in lens?

I guess I will be in the minority opinion on this, but seeing as how Sony Steadyshot does a better job of stablization than Sigma lens stablization, I would rather my Sigma lenses did not not have lens stabilization..

I always leave Steadyshot on and lens stablization off.  So it adds nothing to my usage, but it adds more parts and weight and is one more thing that potentially can break someday in a way that the lens doesn't work right.

It is the same on my Pentax K5ii with Sigma 70-300 mm.   The Pentax in body stabilization is better than the Sigma lens stablization, so I always leave the lens stabilization turned off.

I think one has to actually own a Sigma lens with lens stabilization to get the experience of it and be fully convinced  of this conclusion.
