The X-T4 is my first camera with IBIS, and I love it. The biggest surprise to me was how much my lenses with OIS benefitted from IBIS. My 50-140mm f2.8 all of a sudden became a great choice for indoor photography. OIS alone enabled me to shoot down to 1/60th of a second with usable results. With IBIS, I can use that lens down to 1/15th of a second. That’s 2 stops of extra light beyond what I could get from OIS alone; the same as using an f1.4 lens, but without having to deal with the paper-thin DOF.

With OIS alone using the 70-300 on the X-pro3, I can handhold a shot at 300mm with sharp results at 1/15th second. No IBIS required... the OIS on the new 16-80 and 70-300 is that good.
