Interesting, have you tried this?
My way of thinking is... if an IS lens and a non-moving sensor result in a steady image, then introducing movement to the sensor should negate that effect.

Why should it? IS (body or lens) doesn't apply a fixed amount of correction regardless of actual movement. IS is intelligent enough to determine how much the image is moving and apply accurate correction to the movement. So if lens IS has fully corrected the moment, IBIS would not apply any further correction. However, if the lens has left any movement uncorrected, IBIS ought to correct it further.

A limitation might exist in the amount of time each system is programmed to be active, but if a manufacturer is using both systems, the programming ought to be properly synced. I'd suspect that using both might take too long for some uses, so the user should be able to switch one or the other out.

Optical Image stabilization (OIS) stabilizes 2 axis. IBIS stabilizes 5. If you use an OIS lens with IBIS, the camera will use the two systems in conjunction stabilize the 3 additional axis' that OIS alone does not.

This is exactly right.

OIS and IS only stabilize for pitch and yaw whereas IBIS stabilizes for pitch, yaw, x, y and roll. When a lens is mounted without any stabilization, the IBIS system is used to stabilize all 5 axis's. When a stabilized lens is mounted, it is automatically detected by the camera and it will not turn on the pitch and yaw and only compensate for x, y and roll, leaving the pitch and yaw to be handled by the OIS in the lens.

So in fact with IBIS, you are gaining stabilization for the x, y and roll which lens based IS do not compensate for.

Not quite. If the lens based IS does not fully compensate for pitch or yaw, the IBIS will not apply any further compensation in those axis. It will only concentrate on the x, y and roll...totally leaving the pitch and yaw to the lens based IS.

Sort of, there are quite a few OIS systems that would be called 4-axis in Sony/Olympus IBIS terminology (yaw, pitch, and x & y translation) but they're mostly reserved for macro/near macro lenses. Roll compensation is the only one that OIS systems cannot do for obvious reasons.

Guys, just to help you sound more authoritative, the plural of axis is axes. :)

So IBIS does correct it further, instead of making it worse as had been asserted. It just doesn't correct that which is supposedly handled by the lens.

I'm pretty sure they would cancel each other out.

Your hypothesis is countered by the fact that they have been designed to work together successfully.

DOH! I Didn't see the replies on the next page.

Which raises the question about adapted (i.e. untested) Canon IS lenses on Sony cameras.
The possible problem is that different timings of the two IS systems might fight against each other, unless firmware knows which combo is best at the selected shutter speed.

About optical vs sensor IS, Jim Kasson's blog has some useful info:

This thread has got me to open my mind to the alternatives out there. Sony's OK, but I'm going to Fuji.
It just has more anti SLR goodness to offer, IMO.

Interested in more anti-SLR goodness. Tell us more !

^
The promise of mirror less is lightweight and compact, with (maybe) better IQ for a given sensor size. Though this last issue is less determinable and not conclusive.
Fuji X is much more compact and lighter than Sony, FF anyway. Conceding the last Nth of IQ goes to Sony FF, for what I do it mostly doesn't matter. Factoring in the minor size differential of the Sony system makes the Sony a minor step for those looking to downsize. The Fuji is a much larger step towards small and efficient.

Is it really ? Sony also has very compact APS-C cameras and lenses, plus the flexibility of scaling to FF.
