The new Leica M11 will not have IBIS, but the LCD screen and EVF will have a separate built-in image stabilization


We already know that the Leica M11 camera will not have any IBIS (in-body image stabilization), but I was told that the Leica M11 LCD screen and EVF will have a separate built-in image stabilization system that will be used for easy focusing when focus peaking (it will stabilize only the LCD and EVF but not the sensor). This could also explain why the Leica M11 LCD screen is slightly smaller (2.95” vs 3″) and will require a new LCD screen cover:
