Also, as this causes to halven the shutter speed, it's not an option when using a tele.

Not sure why it isn't an option with a tele?

Eeerrr... in order to get sharp images?
Unless you're using a tripod or can arrange a very comfortable shot otherwise.

Ah - you mean at low shutter speed?

Depends on how low is low for you :)
Honestly, when shooting at - let's say - 300mm, I consider 1/800s to be the threshold for APS-C and 1/500s for FF.
Stabilization and individual steadyness can do a lot about it, but I never trust them too much.

TBH I usually keep to the rule of 1/35mm focal length. This means I usually only handhold to about 300mm. All my long lens have the new IS which works well.

It's all about statistics and the keeper rate - if I shoot something that I can shoot multiple times (or even shoot, look for motion blur, shoot again) I have the experience that IS does help a lot at 300mm and I can use lower iso. But I certainly wouldn't want to depend on IS if I have only one shot.

why dont all the Noink DR fanboys take their D800s over to nikon rumours and have a nice circle jerk over them there instead of constantly plaguing a forum about canon


Haven't had a good circle jerk since college :o Ah, memories ;D

Oh dear, photography is over for me.
 A camera I do not own has bested mine in a lab. :'(

I am headed to the river to throw myself in.
