With IBIS ( in-body image stabilization ) now as a mainstream technology in our cameras, it’s time to talk a little bit about what’s going on behind the scenes.
Alik Griffin just posted an article how three axes of stabilization is the best you can get when you adapt a foreign lens to a modern mirrorless camera.
I think the reasoning seems rather sound. He does make a mistake thinking Nikon's F lenses don't communicate focus distance to the camera even if they've done that since AF-D. I don't think it changes any conclusions regarding Nikon Z system, though.
What do you think?
I've been thinking about the combination of legacy lenses and IBIS a little bit recently. Panasonic cameras have the best system where you get to specify your FL right upon mounting a lens or turning on the camera. But perhaps the playing field is leveled if no IBIS system can get to maximum potential with adapted glass -- perhaps don't worry so much and just enjoy what's there?
