Earlier KM, Sony, Pentax, Olympus, and Panasonic bodies with IBIS would not work in concert with ILIS. You had to choose one or the other. With the A7II are we talking about 6-10 stops of IS now? I somehow missed this news.


Okay, it looks like although they work together you don't get extra stops of IS. The ILIS does the pitch and yaw compensation and the IBIS does the other three axis corrections. When there is no ILIS then the IBIS does all 5 axis corrections:

I don't know if there is really much benefit in this case over just using IBIS, but maybe there is.

After all what's a knife in the back between friendly rivals ?


You would be interested in this thread I created in 2011 about just that thing:
