The rumored lack of IBIS on the Fuji X-T3 is completely baffling...

I was very happy to see that Fuji implemented IBIS on the X-H1, even though I personally thought that at this stage in the photographical game it should have been on the X-T2.

However, the rumoured lack of IBIS on the X-T3 is baffling, ming-boggling even. Lets please try and stay away from pretentious "IBIS doesn't matter if you're a good photographer" nonsense. The fact is IBIS is proven technology and used to great effect on Pentax DSLR's for many years, and then more recently provided as standard in mirrorless cameras from Sony, Olympus and Panasonic. It allows stabilized shooting in low light with slow shutter speeds using unstabilized prime lenses, and the utility of this in some scenarios simply cannot be denied by any rational person.

So then, in an industry that has woken up to IBIS, why would Fuji NOT give the X-T3 IBIS and immediately handicap it vs it's contemporary competitors? It is an instant handicap, and not only that it is not giving its users the same creative freedom as it is capable of doing.

If they are not implementing IBIS simply to protect sales of the X-H1 then that is simply unforgivable.

How do existing, ex or prospective Fuji users feel about this?
