Reading the https://www.dpreview.com/reviews/buying-guide-best-cameras-for-sports-and-action/2

Noticed the X-T3 is criticized for no IBIS!

the phrase "The lack of image stabilization is the main factor you might want to consider in what is otherwise a great all-rounder."

Why isn't this an issue for the reviewer with the Nikon and Canons mentioned costing 3 to 4 times more money?

A review will always generate a bias on the part of the reviewer on top of any that he already has which is what a rating is. Just read around to find the opinion you want.

Just because the reviewer thinks that way does not imply a corporate conspiracy by his employer against a brand.

Do not forget other brands stabilise some primes and even third party lens makers manage to stabilise prime lenses unlike Fuji with their own primes so they are particularly weak in that respect.
