a6300 + Gimbal vs a6500 + Gimbal. Big difference???

Is there a big difference in "jitters" between the a6300 + OSS mounted on a gimbal and the a6500 + IBIS mounted on a gimbal?

(In my case, I would use 10-18 f/4 OSS and a Zhiyun crane with either camera, the a6300 or the a6500).

Brandon Li mentioned that the a6500 better controls "micro jitters" than the a6300 when the same lens is used on a gimbal.

Does anyone else feel that the five-axis IBIS stabilization of the a6500 on a gimbal is better than just the lens-only OSS stabilization of a6300 when mounted on the same gimbal???

So far I have only come across one video that tests them head to head, and it kind of seems like the a6500 performs a tiny bit better, but maybe it is just my mind playing tricks on me!?!?!


Thanks in advance. I am aware of the other features that a6500 boats over the a6300, and I am aware that while handholding there isn't much of a difference between a6500 + five-axis IBIS versus a6300 + OSS. So I hope we can focus this discussion specifically on how they compare when mounted with the same lens on the same gimbal.
