I didn't know that. Electronic stabilization, huh? Like some video cameras?
By the way, the other IBIS cameras also need to know the focal length of the lens in order to work properly. If it is a lens that doesn't communicate that info to the body (old manual focus lens, etc.) then they provide a menu option to set the focal length for the IBIS system to use. Are you saying the A6500 is somehow different?
