Re: Importance of IS?

Just keep in mind that IS does not freeze motion. It just helps with camera shake. I find better high ISO performance and fast glass are what help the most in low light. The need for IS really goes down when you can shoot at ISO6400 without the worry of losing on image quality.

I think the advantages of having a larger sensor and much better high iso performance out weigh any advantages gained from IS. Now of course having both would be the best of both worlds, but I guess we can't have everything.
