Re: Cost of OIS

I'm not an engineer, but I would assume that most of the OIS cost is developing the technology. Once the technology is developed, I doubt it costs that much (in terms of parts and materials) to implement into a particular lens. The fast glass and exotic elements are probably far more expensive.

Indeed, but it definitely adds something, and no matter how small that amount is, it's an addition I could do without, especially since it adds to the bulk of the lens as well.
