Why is the Canon 70-200 f2.8 IS $2700, but the 70-200 f2.8 only $1650? Shouldn't the IS basically be free?

I expect it's simply a case of getting what you pay for.

The better question is: why is this lens $150 more expensive than the Canon 70-200 f2.8, which is a 3lb lens with 18 elements in 15 groups, covering a full frame image area. You're suggesting that this is justified by the inclusion of IS? The Panasonic 14-42 F/3.5-5.6 has image stabilization, and it sells for $169.
