Please see this thread:


Fuji's latest magazine includes OIS in a description of the lens. Seems possible that it was simply an omission in their roadmap.

I saw your post the other day where you informed us about this. Thanks.

But just in case the lens does not come with OIS, i will say it over and over again, the OIS definitely helps in getting sharper and more stable shots, hand held that is.

After using my dad's Sigma 17-50 with stabilization i was clearly getting better results than the nikon 17-55 i had. I used them both at the same time before i sold the nikon.  So in my opinion if this lens comes with no OIS that would be very disappointing. OIS helps for taking video as well.
