Are there any interchangeable lens cameras which have image stabilization in their body too? Yes. Several manufacturers have camera body based stabilization and also offer lens based stabilization on some of their longer focal length lenses. But most of those systems are used on an "either/or" basis and not with both lens based and camera based ...


Panasonic does this on some of their camera bodies (debuting in the GX8). In this case, both systems work together for cumulative benefit. They call this Dual Image Stabilization — but beware, because other companies (I'm looking at you, Fujifilm) use that same term to simply mean optical stabilization plus cranking the ISO up to get faster shutter speeds. ...


I have found these lens Nikon AF 70-300mm f/4-5.6G in a very good price. I am planning to use them mainly to take pictures of the moon. I am aware that this lens does not have image stabilisation. Is this a major drawback ? If you plan on shooting a full moon on a clear night, handheld, it shouldn't be, because you can easily get shutter speeds faster ...


No, since you will want to have the camera and lens mounted on a stable tripod and use a remote or timer release to trigger the shutter. If your shutter speeds fall below about 1/125 second you would also benefit from using mirror lockup.


If you use a tripod, image stabilisation is not necessary. If shooting hand-held, image stabilisation can become important. Given the rule of thumb that 1/focal length is the longest hand-holdable shutter speed, that you likely want to use 300mm and that you likely take the image at night, chances are you have to pick a higher ISO value to keep the shutter ...


Keep the 18-55 IS II and 55-250 IS. The 1200D is a stripped down budget camera bundled with striped down budget lenses. The lenses that came with your XSi are actually superior to the the 1200D kit lenses. The 18-55 III has the same optics as the 18-55 IS II but lacks Image Stabilization. The 75-300 USM has poor optics and lacks Image Stabilization. ...
