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.

So whats your conclusion regarding Sony's Steadyshot?

If the K5II stabiliser is soo good, then it is indeed a gem.

The saxophone is a very interesting machine, but I'm more interested in music.
