can someone shed some light on this or was there an error in the spec grid.

Fuji doesn't do stabilisation for prime lenses. In fact most manufacturers tend not to have it in their prime lenses to avoid having unnecessary extra lens elements. Until last year (when Canon introduced it on a 28mm and a 24mm lens) I think it would have been correct to say that no manufucturer offered stabilsation on a prime lens unless it was either at least 200mm in focal length or was a macro lens.

Sony has IS (they call it OSS) on some of their NEX primes. 35/1.8 OSS, 50/1.8 OSS and soon to be 85/1.8 OSS.
