Is there still an advantage to in-lens stabilization?
1

Relatively new lenses like the 24-105 and the quite new 200-600 have in-lens stabilization. Why would Sony go to the extra expense if there's no advantage? Both lenses are going to be used overwhelmingly on Sony cameras with in-body stabilization.

Are there any tests that would prove or disprove the advantage?

I'm curious because the Tamron 17-28 2.8 does not have stabilization, but my 16-35 F4 does. Would there be an advantage to the Zeiss in a low-light situation such as in a museum or church?

Cheers
