    As system cameras get more complex and attempt to do more the
    accumulation of errors also increases.

    The beginning of this is higher speed film (more grain).

    Zoom lenses (slower, less sharp)

    Autofocus (hysteresis in the focus system, less acute focusing screens
    for manual focus, less "drag" for manual focusing). Later lenses have
    less hysteresis and more "drag".

    IS: less MTF and possibly (as you allude) other contributions to
    softness. (I haven't heard much about this, but probably I'm more
    attuned to the great handheld shots people are making at slower speeds
    than what used to be commonly feasible, and that outweighs anything else).

    However, all of these advances are popular due to: results. More
    photographers can work in more confined conditions (less light, less
    time) and produce a greater volume of quality work, esp. for photography
    that requires a timely response (sports, wildlife, some photojournalism,
    etc.)

    Cheers,
    Alan
