Re: Why no image stabilizer in X systems

In-camera stabilization has three disadvantages compared to in-lens stabilization.

o   The body is more complex

o   The body is heavier.

o   The body costs more and if you prefer not to use IS, you are paying for something you won't use.

Nikon published a white paper that describes technical disadvantages of in-body stabilization. Their arguments may, or may not be complete.

Perhaps Fuji considered all these factors when they decided to use lens-based IS.
