Talking About IS/VR

Is there much of a difference, both in terms of the phsyics as well as the actual results between On board VR/IS verus the VR/IS on a lens?

I know that Sony uses, in their Alpha series, bulit in IS for their bodies such that it doesn't matter which DX lens a person use, he/she will have IS support, while Canon and Nikon put their VR/IS technologies on some of their lenses and not others. (tho I think Nikon has bulit in VR on their point and shoot nowadays).

Do Canon and Nikon simply make more money by only putting VR/IS on some lenses and not others?

Re: Talking About IS/VR

Allegedly IS is better on the lens according to Cannon and Nikon. I am quite happy with on board IS on my Sony but I usually try to shoot in a manner that does not require IS, I just see it as an insurance for when I get it wrong.

Physics I can't answer but I know that if IS/VR in cam goes wrong you lose your camera for a few weeks rather than one lens

IIRC, 4 types of stabilisation: lens, in-camera sensor, software processing (software compares images and processes to a sharper shot - mobile phone and some point and shoots) and gyroscope/steadicam (external, as used for TV cameras and police/military helicopters). In-lens moves an adjustment lens whilst in-camera moves the sensor

Here's a couple of links that demonstrate it a little better than I can!
Image Stabilization

Reading passed Canon's marketing hype it's actually rather good at demonstrating in-lens stabilisation and even better at explaining why the new 100mm lens works it's stabilisation at macro distances - a world first! (credit where credit is due - but it's only 2 stops and so £500/stop! )
Canon in-lense image stabilizers

There is an argument that in-camera attempts to be all things to all lenses and so master of none - but I've never seen evidence to suggest that it isn't perfectly adequate at stabilisation - and certainly no worse than the major manufacturers first generation of IS/VR/OS. But no, I wouldn't say it's to make more money so much as a different approach (and historicial - early days in-lens was the only way)
