The problem with removing a mechanism that used to be there is that in the case of ILIS, the mechanisms would be closely integrated with the focusing system and at least some of the lens elements. Taking that out means effectively redesigning the entirety of the focusing and/or zoom systems and the overlap between the two (while leaving it in means you have to have it work hand-in-glove with your IBIS, which might be even more problematic). And then you have to map the light paths at all focal lengths and write/proof-test the in-camera distortion- and aberration-correction transfer functions to make the lens fully compatible with the body... That all costs $$$.

As always, it is the early adopters who take the hit. It's the price you pay for having the new toys first.
Happy with the price of the camera. 2.8 zooms will have to wait.

My next move in the camera market is dumping this Sony gear and a bunch of other stuff.

Just been reading up on the Tammy 15-30. It's a stunner.
