Sanj, how could it do anything to IQ? It is a mechanical device outside of the row of elements in the lens, it is not optical.
The only way it would affect optics is if it doesn't work properly.
But really this thread is about a non issue. There is no IS vs non IS lens that Canon makes that would be equal, those that are close the IS version is superior to the Non IS version.

Not bad, but the eyes look like they don't belong in that face. A big part of it is not just the selective color processing but also that they're the only things that're sharp due to the shallow depth of field. I'd like to have seen the shot stopped down a bit more, at least enough to have the whole forehead sharp. Really, this particular shot would have been perfect for f/8 - f/11 so you could be hit by the full impact of all the grittiness rather than have some or much of it safely softened and eased out of your mind. I'd even have done so if it meant boosting the ISO -- grain would help, not hurt, this picture.
Just because you can shoot wide-open at a low ISO with only a sliver of the frame in sharp focus doesn't necessarily mean you should....
If you believe that, then why buy a lens? You can get a sharp image without one? Why don'y you start selling them, you can sell sharper lenses for just the cost of a roll of toilet paper.Hi,So you believe a lens with one element is sharpest? Maybe one with no elements is the ultimate?
IMHO, every element added will decrease IQ by a bit, so a lens without IS will have slightly better IQ than lens with IS (when both lens are from the same generation and same grade) under perfect shooting condition.
That would be so. Looking through a hollow tube will always give you the clearest sharpest image. You can not improve the light when it is in it's near perfect unrestricted form.
Multiple lens elements do, in fact correct the various abberations that come from just one element. Thats why the lenses that are sharpest have multiple elements.
Your theory seems pretty badly flawed when compared with the real world.

I use this service all the time to get tough to find items to Canada from the United States.
You can also sign up for reship with a US address, they will warehouse your package for up to 90 days free prior to mailing it. You could have them mail it to you, or to your friend.
Amazon.com has no problem with my Canadian billing address on my Credit Card, and my Oregon shipping address @ reship.
This is a bit shady, but you can buy it today giving an address but a card that will probably decline because of not having enough funds. They will then take about 3 days to notice and then tell you to give a good card in 3 days and then rinse and repeat and you can buy yourself sometime that way.
