Is the range finder style steadier than the slr one ?

For those of you that have done the comparisons, do you find the range finder style of Fuji cameras (XE or Xpro line) steadier to shoot with vs. the slr style (XT or X line) ? That is in cases where shutter speeds are low, like 1/15 or under. I am thinking that due to the placement of the head being in a more upright/natural position with the range finder style, it could be easier to hold steady (for longer). I've only shot with Fuji range finder so curious to gather people's thoughts. I am not necessarily looking for a scientific comparison.

I am seriously considering the X-S10 as my next camera due to IBIS but other than that, really like the range finder style and dials, in relation to the upcoming XE-4 (which may end up having ibis despite the rumors). My goal is to shoot steady (short) video or long-ish  handheld exposures (1-8 sec).
