    Rather than hijack another thread I'm currently on, I thought I'd pose the question in a separate one - can anyone point me to a source or have any real world examples demonstrating the difference between the 3 point and 5 point IBIS. I understand that there must be some kind of noticeable difference in the images but haven't been able to see any evidence of this on the web.

    You mean 3 and 5 direction IBIS? The difference is if you moved the 3 direction IBIS it can't handle but the 5 direction IBIS can, the 3 direction couldn't compensate for it while the 5 direction could!

    It's like asking the difference in driving a rear wheel drive, front wheel drive, and four wheel drive car in dry conditions. If you're not told which type of car you're driving, you won't notice a difference, that is until conditions change which favors one drive type over the other.
