Fuji X-H1 IBIS and 16/1.4?

I'm currently shooting with an X-T1, which I really like. But, there is an itch starting to develop and I've started considering whether to look at adding a new body in the next 6 months or so.

My choices are going to be X-T2, X-T3 or X-H1. I think that X-T2 and X-H1 are fairly comparable except for IBIS - but how effective is IBIS with a 16/1.4 or 56/1.2, anyone using either of these combinations?

Aside from the IBIS, you may want to go to a store and try out the X-H1 in your hands. To be sure about the ergonomics. IBIS may be a moot point if you either really love, or really hate how that camera feels in your hands.
I suspect that you're spot on here Bobby. Also, I'm in a position where I can wait for the X-T3 to appear, so could be stepping up two generations from the X-T1 instead of just one.

IBIS works just fine!
Thanks for replying, any idea what effect it has on the 16/1.4 Mike?

For example, I would probably handhold the 16 on my X-T1 at 1/30 but no slower - if IBIS gives 5 stops, I would expect to be able to handhold for 1s, which seems a long time to me.

Andy, the whole purpose of IBIS is to allow handheld shots at slow shutter speeds. With an IBIS equipped camera I would very much think it possible to handhold at 1/30!
And of course the expertise of the shooter also comes into play!
The 23mm and the 35mm both 1.4 work well and IBIS is not noticeable in action!
