Do the other name-brand lens makers have a version of Image Stabilization, or is that kind oftechnology used solely on Canon lenses?

Nikonoffers lenses with the same type of stabilizatoin. They call it VR, for vibration reduction. Pentax has just released a new DSLR with the stabilization built into the body, so it works with all their lenses, not just their fanciest ones. Sony has it in the PnS market, it's been on their camcorders for years. So it's not that exclusive of a technilogy

Sony also just released their Alpha 100 dSLR which is based on the Minolta mount with "Anti-Shake"
-> We now have two dSLR manufacturers with IS built into the body that will work with all lenses...

Both theses cameras are priced very competitively so let just wait and see how this market is shaping up - My bet is sooner or later another name brand manufacturer will follow suit and it will be a tidal wave where IS in the camera is a given! :-)
