to IS or not to IS depends on whether you need to be shooting at a slower shutterspeed for a particular reason (nice slow speed to blur props on a warbird, or getting other motion into a shot, for example)
If you can get away with higher speeds, then IS isn't such a need or as helpful.

If it were me, I'd buy an IS lens every time...

Note to self - when faced with either running over a lump of concrete on the motorway, or swing wide & hit another car, it is not always the best choice to hit the concrete...

That's very sad news Jake,
I met Clive a couple of times - he was always happy to chat & pass on knowledge to anyone that would listen. Thanks for letting us know.

:( well that's sad to hear.

I had met him a few times in many of the GKPE outings and he was always very knowledgeable on all things photography. I remember on outing he pointed out in a EOS magazine the benefits of using mirror lock-up. I still remember that every time I think about long exposures.

Mark, since getting my 24-105 'married' to the camera by Canon I have found shooting at wide open is very possible. I have another question is really to myself, how much shooting am I really going to do? :rolleyes: I am not getting any fitter -?
