If I'd owned another system, I would have paid a LOT more for equivalent functionality (with OS in lens) -

Sony - Sigma Lens 70-200 f2.8 APO EX DG OS HSM $1409
or Sony 70-200mm f/2.8G $2345

Well, just to be fair, with a Sony you could buy the same Sigma 70-200mm f/2.8 II EX DG HSM Macro for Aus$549 (if available in the shop) and have the same functionality as with Pentax.

In fact, Minolta was the first manufacturer (IIRC) to have sensor based image stability on a DSLR.
