IBIS, claims versus reality

I saw this on another forum. PhotoMagazin has done a cross-brand IBIS test of combined IBIS/OIS. I haven't got the actual article (maybe one of our German friends has access) so I don't know what is their test methodology, and it's unlikely to be the same as CIPA. The Olympus E-M1 III does pretty well, about as good as the Canon R5 (even though it claims eight stops) and better than Sony or Fujifilm. They haven't tested an mFT Pansonic, but the S1H is about as good as the E-M1 III. Neither makes it to the claimed seven stops - about five is as far as they go.

I think the lesson is, both have good IBIS but take the claims with a pinch of salt.
