Re: Handheld stability mystery

I measured that the weight of the K5ii+18-135 was 5.1 ounces more than the Sony A65+18-135.  So I added the 5.1 ounces to the Sony.  It did not make any difference, the stabiliity in my hands of the A65 was the same.     So I tried a lot of different ways of holding the A65 without any real difference.  I am really puzzled how the K5ii can be so much more steady in my hands.
