Fuji OIS Oddity? | Black and White Project

I have exactly one Fuji X system lens with OIS, the 18-55mm. I like this compact zoom far more than I thought I would and use the crap out of it. I have a ton of hours of in-field use as well as more than a little bit of casual testing. There’s one thing I just cannot get a handle on though — performance and predictability of the OIS. I’ve had stabilized lenses before, I’ve used other people’s stabilized lenses before, I’ve even debugged other peoples issues related to their stabilized lenses. I’ve never really trusted the stabilization, trust it in the same way as I do other mechanical camera functions where I know exactly what’s going to happen. I’ve never really tried to trust it, nor have I spent a lot of time figuring it out……

Think you got the link wrong. I’m fine with it but the fuji-gear-a-holics might be upset hearing a bunch of philosophy vs the meat of the matter ;-)
