eysha: I think most people here have already explained about the image stabilizing lenses for DSLR - just wanted to add one more thing. If you get a interchangeable lens camera (like a DSLR), the lens and camera have to be of the same make (brand) for the lens stabilizer to work. For example, when I use my Panasonic GF1 with my Olympus 300mm lens, the stabilizer systems are not compatible. If I had a Panasonic 300mm lens, the stabilizer would work, except that lens costs about $200-$300 more.

eysha - kind of. Every camera brand has a different thread/mount for the lens. So you will need to buy an adapter. If you want to use an auto focus lens, then you need an adapter that has electrical connection built in, so the camera can command the lens to focus. These adapters can be expensive. If you have an old fashioned non-auto focus lens, then you can buy cheaper straight adapters, but you have to focus manually by turning the ring round the lens.
