Re: Why no image stabilizer in X systems


I'm looking to buy my next camera and have narrowed my search to either Fujifilm X series or Sony NEX.

To my surprise neither cameras do not have inbuilt image stabilization and Fujifilm does not have any available lenses that have stabilizer built in. At least Sony have 1 or 2 lenses from memory.

My first question have in mind is, why don't they incorporate any sensor image stabilization into these cameras? two, why haven't at least one lens is released with image stabilization?

Thanks in advance.

Olympus XZ-1 and working my way up!

Handled an X-E1 and it had a lens IS switch.
I looked at it for quality reasons. Very nice and and seems a bit more room for big hands.
The price would jump IIS or its less robust. No big deal when sticking to 2-3 lenses tops.
