canon is binos
Canon and Nikon are the two leaders in IS binoculars and I would rate them as optically and mechanically about as good as it gets in IS.
Yes, there is a downside to IS. Relative to conventional binoculars, IS binoculars are fragile and nowhere near as durable. For this reason, IS binoculars typically carry only a 1 year warranty. Unless there is a specific need for the Image Stabilization, I usually recommend a conventional binocular, especially when hard use is likely.
