    New generation IS?

    Anyone see this?

    http://www.dpreview.com/news/0907/09...onhybridIS.asp

    I've always wanted IS on my 100 mm macro, now maybe it'll happen.

    Thoughts?

    But the question would be, how big would be the price jump when IS is added.....

    Anyway would love to see IS implemented in some of the fixed focal lenght lens.....

    The best thing about this is that when the new lenses come out with this "next generation" IS the prices of the older lenses will fall in the used market.

    I understood the Pentax K20D had IS that compensated for motion in vertical, horizontal and rotational directions. Forgive me for yawning.

    How is this any different than the typical camera shake and panning mode?

    I know Nikon has a "regular" and "active" mode on their VR systems. "Active" doesn't mean panning like Canons Mode 2. "Active" is meant to be used if you are in the back of a boat, or riding along in a bumpy car where there is a jarring force that moves you and the camera.

    Is this new technology just an adaptation of that mode?
