So I was talking with a guy in my unit about his camera. He is well know in our unit as the artist and photographer. I thought I might gets some tips from him but found he honestly shoots all his stuff in auto on a Sony camera. When I got my camera the most common advise I got was get a camera from a camera manufacture not a multi-purpose company (ie sony)

(Sorry I tell more of the story than needed so here is the point :) )
So I asked why he went that way and he said you can't beat built in stabilization plus he could get a tameron lens with image stabilization so he would have dual stabilization????? Really, dual stabilization??? That doesn't seem like having dual stabilization would work, that it would actually hurt because one would be trying to compensate for the other.

That would completely mess up, because the one system is trying to compensate for the other system's compensation. If anything, it would be worse than not using IS at all.
