Re: Danny: the curious case of the EF 300/4L IS

I have grown tired of the arguments against IBIS , mainly coming from people who have never used a camera which has it. The fatuous point that it doesn't stop movement was only an issue which confused Sony's Marketing Department in the past , not actual users!

Sony seem to have given up on IBIS & quite frankly I have now given up on Sony ....... It's still provided for some A-mount cameras but how much longer they will be around is anyone's guess ? It's interesting how the arguments against IBIS in the NEX's seem to be forgotten when talking about the A-mounts.....

The confusion over IBIS in Sony cameras have caused a mess with 3rd party lens suppliers who used to offer ILIS but who , apparently , were persuaded by Sony to drop it because some users didn't know how to switch it off.

Sony themselves were too lazy to incorporate a sensing mechanism which disabled IBIS when an active ILIS lens was mounted - I expect the necessary software programming was beyond their capabilities ?
