Now we see through a glass, darkly...

Proper technique doesn't let you shoot a handheld waterfall or a very dark scene, but IS (in all its forms) helps you do that.
We can call it lazyness (I do hear you, I don't mean to sound flippant), but one simply can't take a tripod everywhere or add light to every scene. IS helps in many, many ways.
The question is, how many 1D X users shoot in such scenarios? Or do most of them shoot in scenarios that require faster shutter speeds due to subject motion?
