Body and/or lens stabilization

These are hardly conclusive, since these things vary from second to second. (It's always a good idea when using dicey shutter-times to takes several pics at once, preferably in serial-shooting mode.) But it's clear that having both turned on is a bad idea.
Below: cameras can look funny when fitted with a lens of a different size-ideal.       :-)
