1. In-the lens IS can be seen working in the camera viewfinder, so the photographer can know when the image is stable and can release the shutter. In the body IS cannot be seen in the viewfinder.Another inherent drawback of Sony cameras that effects Sony's (and others) market share, is in-body image stabilization and it's associated limitations when compared to in-the-lens image stabilization.
You keep saying this, do you have any evidence? Any review I've ever read lists in-body stabilization as a pro, not a con.
2. In-the-lens IS can correct for larger movements than can in-the-body IS.
I agree with those, but you do get an indicator that says the stabilizer is ready. In-body works for every lens and you only pay once. That's more important to me.
I just received a Sigma 150-500mm with OS. I should do some testing vs in-body on my K20D. The K-5 would be a better test, because it corrects for rotational motion, which the K20 and in-lens systems don't.
