do image stabilisers decrease image quality?

rhysgray:
it seems all of canons sharpest lenses have no IS.
is this co-incidence or is it because the addition of an IS system somehow negatively affects image quality?????

rhysgray:
everybody knows the advantages of an IS system but are there any disadvantages other than size weight and price???

I do not believe that is accurate.  The newest lenses are the sharpest, and most have IS.  They have a more complex optical formula, and cost more as well. So what is true, is that newer lenses are sharpest, and prime lenses of the same generation and price range are usually sharper than a zoom.
