One way of improving*photo quality? Reducing the effects of hand shakes.....

Well, that would be like saying using a tripod improves photo quality. The problem with each statement is that neither are absolutes. For example, if you take a shot with a 24mm lens and the shutter speed is set to 1/4000, a tripod is not going to improve the photo quality versus hand held because the shutter speed is so fast that any slight movement would be undetected. Same goes with OSS. As long as you're over 1/fl OSS isn't doing a thing to improve anything.

So, I get what you mean, it's just the semantics of how you're putting it.
