I don't understand that comment.If my 5DMkIII had IBIS...I would have already purchased the EF 11-24 lens.
Part of the reason my M Canon bodies have seen so much use over the years is that the format's 'best' lens, the EF-M 11-22...is IS.
In my hands...over and over again... lens-based IS has been invaluable. I imagine that Canon, when they implement IBIS...that it will also prove to be an excellent tool.
The EF-M is an equivalent 18-35 F/4– 5.6, put the EF 16-35 f4IS on your 5D MkIII and you get over one stop of ISO performance at 18mm and over two stops at 35mm. Also your enlargement ratio is 50% less so you can use a slower shutter speed for the same visible shake.
The EF11-24 is not the EF-M 11-22 equivalent, the EF 16-35 f4 IS is, and that has IS!
