There is no way to enable/disable camera and lens stabilization separately.

They are either both enabled or disabled.

Br, Pawel

Really? So turn one on and they're both on? Why even have a switch on the lens?

...so you don't have to browse the menu everytime you want to switch it on or off...

why would you want to switch one off and leave the other on?

With native lenses, you would not want to, and cannot. With adapted lenses, I am not convinced that Metabones' implementation of coordinated stabilization is as good as native, but I'm still evaluating that; they give you the choice of none, one, the other, or both. With some adapters, like the Viltrox III, you can also enable both, and they don't cooperate at all, and the result is worse than no stabilization.

point taken.
