Every OIS/IBIS system I have used has at times messed up my pictures instead of helping them. Most of the time they are great, but every so often you will get some crazy image where the system didn't do the job properly.

I think there is a point of diminishing returns with image stabilisation ; it's great to just get the shot, when conditions are very challenging, or when ultimate IQ is not a major concern .

IS is almost always degrading IQ, IF there is a choice to not use it , but by how much depends on the circumstances .

We talk about sensors and software recording and anticipating movement, adjusting lens elements or sensors in split seconds, and there might be a little image correction involved as well, even with Raw files .

The OMD E-M5's multi-axial gyroscopic IBIS is so very good that it needs to be considered in a whole new context.
