24mm f/2.8 IS shows the clear case for in-body IS

I don't understand what Canon is playing at, that they think people will not notice that their new IS short primes offer little to no benefit over the old ones optically, while being bigger, heavier and much more expensive. A case in point is the 24mm f/2.8 IS.

Canon, we need in-body IS, not for you to rape our pocketbooks. You ought to be ashamed.

Little to no optical difference, and certainly none worth the price differential.

Non-IS: 9.52 ounces, approx. 2.6 x 1.9" (6.60 x 4.83 cm), $359
