Why is the Canon 70-200 f2.8 IS $2700, but the 70-200 f2.8 only $1650? Shouldn't the IS basically be free?

They are two different lenses and years of development between both if you refer to the latest 2.8 IS II version versus the old non-IS version which is perhaps since the 1990s on the market.

Ok, 70-200 f4 IS $1500, 70-200 f4 $900.

Again, these are two different constructions and not simple the same lens with and without IS. I am not saying there is no mark up in price for IS at all but it is far less than you think it might be.

Well, the Panasonic and Fujifilm lenses are also different constructions, so Martin's question still stands.
