How's the IS at 300mm/max zoom?

Pretty good, I'd say, and certainly very usable. The jpegs also pp nicely, so results are fine.

As another poster said recently (skes, I think, about his SZ-30MR) ...which I agree with : for the few long-zoom shots one may need to make, I'd prefer to use the long end of the lens with IS, rather than a heavy crop of an image taken at a shorter focal length.

The zoomed image is substantially better than the crop, one of the reasons I chose a superzoom compact on this occasion.

All the best,
Nick
