Lenses of shorter lengths do not need stabilization. If the 20 1.7 needed OIS, it would have it. In fact, no lens needs stabilization. All any lens needs is a human to select the proper combination of shutter speed, aperture and ISO...or to have a tripod handy when necessary. This dependency on stabilization is silly.

Just like the dependence on autofocus, autoexposure, etc. I presume.  It's a shame to be able to take pictures more quickly and in more situations.  The horrors of technological progress.
