I have not had much success getting the IS to really help me. Is it better to use with the EVF?

I never, ever, use a long zoom setting or the DTCs with the LCD panel. You need the camera against your face to get a stable shot. Think about it. Our eyes are in our head, which means we have A LOT of practice keeping our heads relatively still. It is almost impossible, on the other hand, to keep our hands still. Therefore make the camera a part of your head, not your hands.

Amen!  I could never had a camera without a viewfinder.  Chipmunk looks super!  How large of a print do you think  you could do, with pp, and still have it look good? (I know "good" is relative).
