Its like that im so not-sharing-that-opinion that i want to bust their faces. Think as the camera beeing a gun, but instead of bullets which can we all know, kill, it just shoots pictures. Was that so hard?

...and with that statement, I am done with this thread.

bw!:lol::lol::lol: That was pretty much my reaction.
I for one, don't really need IS... My 100-400L had it, but I despise my copy of it because it's not sharp (whatsoever). I like it on the 100 2.8L, but I don't need it on the long lenses, necessarily. My 400 5.6 doesn't go out birding much in very dark environments anyways...


I wonder if the video editors on The Titanic ever went, "Sorry, I can't right now. I'm busy synching the Titanic..."

This thread has me shaking my head. I need IS because I have a tremor. It's not terrible, but it's enough that it creates camera shake unless I'm shooting very fast shutter speeds. I use a tripod when I can, but it's not always practical. I shoot fast shutter speeds when the situation and desired image make that a good choice. Sometimes I want a slower shutter speed and then the IS really helps. I use the 5DIII which has superb high ISO capability but sometimes I want slower shutter speed because it will make a better photo.

I am glad my lenses have IS, even the 24-105.

This is one of the two ridiculous ideas being carried through this thread. The two ideas are:

1) If someone feels a feature (like IS) is desireable, then that means they think it is absolutely necessary. Step back and start thinking. I like IS. I think IS is very handy.

But that doesn't mean that all lenses without IS are useless, and it doesn't mean photography was impossible before IS was invented. Stop trying (and failing) with the hyperbole.

2) Don't think that everyone shoots the same subjects and same styles as you. The OP obviously only uses IS to overcome technical limitations (aperture and ISO) in low light.

But a lot of people use IS specifically because they want a slow shutter speed. If this isn't you, then fine. But just because feature X is not of importance to you doesn't mean it isn't important to me.

These two very self-centered and myopic views have actually driven this long and rather pointless thread.

Good god people....can't you tell when someone is being sarcastic.....LOL

following your logic, you can also say:

It's amazing anyone got usable shots before A.F.


AF or IS are not make or break your photography; they are just tools that help people achieve their goals.

Just because you don't understand it, or need it, does not mean other people won't.

It's called sarcasm......look it up!....LMFAO

if in the original post every "you" was replaced with "I"...i don't think anyone would care...you'd maybe get a comment of 'good for you' but that's about it...

and it does seem like after the backlash that is your way of thinking now...you do realize that for you IS under 50mm is unnecessary, but there may be others that have a different style, and find it as something desirable

Totally correct!

I don't even know why I bother to look at threads like this, but sometimes my curiosity gets to me. As Andre says...if the OP had written "I don't need IS, damn!" then we could all applaud and say "clever fellow"!

But to be so ignorant as to tell others what they need is to tell us more about himself than we probably want to know. Walking in the shoes of others is a good way of getting blisters!

Once again you demonstrate that the answer to the only question in your original post is 'Yes'.

I grew up on film and shooting a 200mm lens without IS is more challenging. It is not impossible. Stabilization has not been here forever, you know.

I grew up on maps, and driving in the countryside without GPS is more challenging. It is not impossible. The GPS has not been here forever, you know.

But why???
