Sony should just come with a disclaimer: OSS has been known to offend skilled photographers and force them to defend their shooting competence.

It would take the truly incompetent to be unaware that Sony is offering OSS on its NEX-series, whereas this thread isn't about Sony.

unaware? Why would Sony put a disclaimer up on a product they're not offering? 

Sony isn't offering OSS? It is Zeiss argument.

So the consensus for some people is that OSS, which Sony presumably spent thousands/millions of dollars on to design and ENHANCE photo quality............degrades quality.

OSS is a rescue, not a photo quality enhancement, tool. It is basically an alternative to tripod but if you had the option between using a tripod versus OSS, why would you pick the latter? Ideally, it is best unused.

There's a time and place for each feature on a camera, posting pictures of when NOT to use them does not aid your point, just makes you look silly.

The time and place for OSS, or any stabilization, is almost never the ideal occasion. The shutter speed being too slow, despite a relatively higher ISO.

Posting a picture of your f1.4 and 1/5 shutter speed out in the sunlight does not make the wide aperture lens look like bad quality......(It's you)
