I don't loath tripods, I used to shoot landscapes and what not in my film days. So setting up a tripod and what not is standard fare, and in most cases necessary.

But yeah, IS is a very nice feature to have. Especially the older I get lol.

Cheers

Ive yet to know the wonders that IS withholds.

Im curious though. Do many people use tripods when regularly shooting landscapes and such? The only time I use one is when its neccessary.

Same here. I fear that if I try a lens with IS, that's all I'll want. :p

I nearly always use a tripod or monopod if it is allowed, even though my 2 most used lenses have IS.

IS is the best thing since sliced bread... on telephotos.

I've been using various long lenses with it for 8 or 9 years. Would not want to be without it! Even though I'm using tripods or monopods a lot of the time too.

On shorter lenses, ho hum. I can live without IS... On anything shorter than, say, 90 or 100mm.

There are many good reasons to use a tripod, BTW, other than just holding the shot steady.

oups ....I won't exactly agree, I have a 70-300DO with IS ... but I prefer to use a 135L.20 with higher shutter speed .. the only time I feel IS usefull, it's when nothing is moving (people, animals, cars and even water, trees)
If something is moving I need 1/125 or 1/200 otherwise people are not sharp enough (we can't see fingers and so on)..
So for me F2.0 is far better than F5.6 with IS !!!!! ..

My favorite function of IS is framing.
When IS is active, it makes it a lot easier to frame your subject (especially in sports/panning).
I need/notice IS somewhere between 100mm and 135mm and up
When I shoot with a 100mm prime, I don't miss it
When I shoot with the 135mm, I start to notice it would be handy to have.
With the 200, I really wish it had it, it can get pretty tough to properly frame your subject
