I'm glad to hear that's it's not a flaw, just a poor design.

LOL, others may call it a feature (stabilizing the image view). Perhaps the poor design is in the older (noticeably noisy) IS mechanisms of the older lenses?

I look at it as a way for Canon to make money.

The older lenses are just that, old. If you make newer cameras that will somehow affect these older lenses to perhaps, breakdown, then say that the lens is 10 years years old and can't be repaired, what does the camera owner do? They buy new glass.

Should I even think about wearing down the battery needlessly. In warmer climates that may not matter. In the great white north, it kind of does. Good thing I bought 4 extra batteries when I got this camera.

I.S. lenses have been around for what ... 30 years. Why does this function need to stay on now? I'm pretty sure there could be a switch added into the firmware that would give the end user the option as to how they would like it to function.

Ok, my little rate is over.
