Thanks, Chris. If the Olympus lenses don't even have IS, there's less
excuse for them being so expensive. There is no IS in the Samsung NX10,
either lens or camera. I think they will need that before being taken
even half-seriously.

Cheers,
David

Thanks, Peter. If you have particular needs, that obviously influences
what you buy.

Cheers,

You haven't used a long telephoto lens hand-held with in-lens IS, have
you?

Cheers,

I agree. It is a pity that Samsung had not extended its co-operation
with Pentax beyond DSLRs to include the NX series. Samsung would
then have had access to Pentax' in-body stabilisation technology for
the NX10.

Instead, the relationship was terminated altogether, leaving Pentax in
a fairly desperate state. And Samsung without stabilisation.

Also IS isn't a fixed technology. It keeps improving. So if you want
the extra stop or so of extra IS that's just been developed you either
have to buy a new set of lenses, or just a new body, which you were
probably going to buy anyway. If your lenses are full of
electromechanical technology they're goiong to age a lot faster.
