Hmm, maybe that'll get Nikon and Canon to drop prices for stabilized lenses sometime in the future. I mean, in-lens stabilization is great but the lenses are darn pricey!
I'm not sure it will have an effect on their prices.....brands like Canon and Nikon have a following of devoted consumers that don't have an issue with price. They may lose some business... They certainly won't get any of my money.
