If we wait one year.... - Photography

Will we see DSLRs incorporating all elements available only across many different manufacturers as of now? For instance, Olympus has ultrasonic CCD window cleaning of dust, but no image stabilization. I'm wondering if both these attributes will become a standard in a year's time? -Rich...

    Just a guess, but I don't think Canon will include IS in their camera
    bodies any time soon. That would probably crush the market for their
    expensive IS lenses.

    You can wait ten years and they might serve ice cold martini's.

    Seriously, there are patents and licencing issues. Manufacturers generally want
    to avoid paying royalties/licences, so they have to find their own ways to solve
    specific problems. This is bad in a way (all the variations result in different
    behaviors across brands); this is also good as innovation is a pillar of
    competition, benefitting the buyer.

    In the end, if you wait for the perfect camera you'll never get it.

    Cheers,
