Is it just disappointing that Samsung are putting OIS on so few of their lenses.

It may not matter so much for photo, but is a blessing for video.

I'd even settle for some kind of digital stabilisation for lenses without.

I wish they had in-body stabilization (sensor shift) like some manufacturers offer. The OIS lenses could use up less power with OIS turned off if wanted, and you could have stabilization using legacy lenses too.

I don't really care if OIS is superior to sensor shift or not... if they can justify selling us lenses without any stabilization at all, then surely there is room to argue that SF stabilization is acceptable.

I'd much rather spend extra money on a given lens having a larger aperture than on it having an OIS mechanism that adds size, weight, complexity, may be subject to less durability, and adds power drain.

Keep it simple and reliable.
