lol you could easily flip the table and say "i'm tired of people saying they need IS", as those types of comments litter up the forum just as frequently.
It's a matter of perspective
not really. If you have IS, you can always turn it off, and not the other way around.
it's like autofocus; I bet you'de get tired of the "I dont need autofocus on my lenses" if it were the case. If you dont need it, turn it off. But you can see how it would get annoying if a new lens were to come out and the brigade of manual focus users asserts a position that AF isnt needed.
