Image Stabilization is in body. I guess you have never even seen a Pentax or Sony body before

You can also buy the new lenses too: heres an example

Of course I know they are IBIS, you missed Olympus. But it is common knowledge that IBIS is much inferior compared to ILIS for telephotos.

Not only that, but even if for the sake of argument we said that IBIS was functionally equal to optical stabilization, IBIS makes no sense to use in a DSLR. It stabilizes the sensor and nothing else. The photographer (especially with a zoom or tele lens) has a jittery, twitchy view through the viewfinder; the metering and AF sensors have to try and make sense out of the same jittery twitchy 'view' they pick up through the unstabilized lens, which makes their job harder to do. It certainly isn't going to help with AF tracking.

There is a reason Canon and Nikon use optical IS in their DSLR's and it's not so they can charge more for the lenses; it's because it's the best way to do the job.

IBIS may be debated as an advantage in a mirrorless camera, but isn't even on the radar for a DSLR.
