Re: Importance of IS?

With my D700 I owned no stabilised lenses. Instead, I relied on sufficient shutter speed and the excellent high ISO response of the sensor. With the Fuji XPro1 I use the same techniques.

IS is useful are when you are trying to do long exposures of say a waterfall and you've forgotten the tripod. There are ways around this, but undoubtedly IS shows its value.

The stabilised 18-55 zoom is a welcome addition and does give you more leeway in terms of shutter speed.
