I see no difference with IS or without IS, so i guess it doesn't really
slows down camera. I think that those gyroscopes are working independently
and camera doesn't even knows they are there. The diffenence would be if
this stabilization would be software solution...
I think that Minolta has movable CCD sensor for this purpose , which i think
can be less durable, since wires must vibrate along with sensor, which is
not the case if only lens is moving.
