2nd. That it will be 200grams more heavy. I do not see any reason for that either. I wonder what would add the extra weight?
@Polansky: A faint guess only: How much would in-camera IS differ in total weight? Would that count for pro's? Or could it refer to an additional video unit and stuff? I have no idea about tech and its probable influence on weight. Anyone? Cheers, Pedro
That would add to the weight of the camera, but inbody IS is not something to expect from Canon.
Its also not the preferred way to stabilize lenses as IS does work better with long lenses like the 200, 300, 400+ mm range. Next to that Canon does have perfect stabilized L lenses already. Such large lenses can hardly be stabilized by a inbody system unless the motor has to work very hard to act as a counterweight to the lens.
So there is also no need to bring on a inbody IS system to Canon Camera's.
Inbody IS is to my opinion therefore just a marketing thing from Sony.
