In a video interview a while back, a Zeiss representative explained that they do not make lenses with image stabilization because it is impossible to get the tolerances they require.

IS can be very good and in very low light with longer lenses and static subjects it can be a life saver, but the fact is that having moving elements and trying to "park" them perfectly at the exact moment of exposure is very difficult and does not allow for the precission of a fixed element.

there is a reason why both Nikon and Canon choose not to put IS in their 24-70 f/2.8 professional lenses.
