    if you have a body that has a built in IS system and also have an IS lense what is the affect? do they add or multiply or other?

    like if ur body lets u open up 2 stops and ur lens allows u to open up 4 stops.
    does the combination allow you 4 stops, 6, or 8?

    I dont know. i figured that u caould get 3rd party IS lenses for pentax or olympus (but i didnt look into it). plus one of the rumors i heard for the 450d is that it might have on body IS. Obviously at this point its just a rumor but it could be pretty cool

    it would probably have some weird feedback issues like an IS lens on a tripod does :o

    Most likely... Both systems work on detecting camera / lens movement. If the lens is sending movement corrected light rays to the sensor, but the sensor is moving because the camera told it to, I think the two technologies would basically cancel each other out.
