Do I need Image Stabilization in the lens?

Hello to all the Sony Alpha mavens out there.

I am thinking of buying my first D-SLR camera. It will only be used for family photos and vacation shots. I'm gravitating toward the Sony Alpha A580.

My question is: given the fact that the camera has in-body image stabilization, can I buy a lens that doesn't have IS built into it?

Thanks!
