That isnt true. While weaker brands generally offer better value in camera bodies, they offer much poorer value in lenses. It holds true even among the cheapest lenses.

For example, Canon 18-55 STM has the best IQ of all 18-55 kit lenes from every maker (possible exception of fuji, but that is a much more expensive lens, $400 as a kit vs 100 as kit for everyone else). Canon 55-250 has the best IQ of all 55-2xx kit lense of all makers. So even for the basic kit buyers, Canon still produces, ultimately, more than competitive IQ.

Yet Canon and Nikon still force their users to pay extra for lenses with IS.

Reality says you're wrong

Meanwhile, IBS is just as good if not better on most other brands.

Based on what? My understanding is that IBS is equivalent to ILS for short focal lengths and inferior for long ones. Of course IBS is better than nothing when you use lenses without ILS.
