How many stops of stabilization do you get with the 24-105 f/4 in practice?

This is an unscientific opinion, but if you're talking about stabilization versus SS equaling focal length, then I would say 4 stops on the wide end i.e. 1/6 vs 1/24. On the long end however, it is my finding that you still have to keep up the SS. If I'm careful, i.e. I let the camera "settle" before taking the shot I can use 1/30, otherwise 1/50, 1/100. YMMV

Thank you, this is helpful. In DPReview's test of the A7R II's IBIS , they found that the stabilization is more effective at the long end than the wide end, and tests for other Sony cameras found the same thing. This tells me that perhaps the OSS of the 24-105 in conjunction with IBIS is giving an additional advantage at the wide end over IBIS alone.
