Re: IBIS Fractures ? Is that a thing ?

As the OP, here's where the discussion has led me:

  • There doesn't appear a lot of personal anecdotes about IBIS fractures/failures.
  • While Cicala has identified fractures as a real-world concern, we are only a few years into mirrorless builds. It's likely that newer models will include improvements to obviate the occurrence of IBIS fractures (that is an assumption). I'm guessing that the next time we get a IBIS camera teardown, there will be some analysis specific to the IBIS frame, etc.
  • I prefer buying used equipment, when possible. I don't purchase equipment that's more than a couple of years in use. For a mirrorless camera, I'll probably want to shorten that duration.

Thanks all !
