Wouldn't that be cool? I'm not sure if it is optically possible, but if an IS can be put in a sensor, maybe it can be done as an add-on. Yeah, yeah, I know Canon has invested in lens-IS technology, so this will never happen, but an interesting concept nevertheless.

Nah.......because the IS won't be stabilizing the lens elements, other than the lens barrel. I think the in-body IS has something to making the correction on the sensor level. An "IS converter" is neither here with the lens element or there with the sensor....

I've often hoped that some third party company would come up with something like this, but generally I don't think it is actually possible, their are only 2 possible add on IS options, a monopod (i know, barely less hassel the a tripod) or I once saw an add for a gyro stabalizer. Basically a small motorized weight that screws into the tripod mount that senses your shaking and moves counter to it helping you stay more stable. I have no idea how much these cost or how well it works. But I do know cruise ships use something similar on billiard tables so people can play pool despite their ships movements at sea so it must work some what...

I knew I should have filed that patent :p

Anyway, I realise this doesn't necessarily mean it's going to happen, but I still think it's a cool idea.
