    Image stabilized extender



    It's just a random thought i had the other day. Is it possible to have image stabilization in the extender, therefore negating the need for IS in the lens itself? Or perhaps not an extender, but just a detachable "IS module"?

    That would be cool to have adaptable mounts on either side with a chip inside that swaps out info to the right contacts
