with regards to camera blur, I believe the only way to overcome this probably is either to shoot at faster shutterspeed (1/200 atleast) or activate OSS in some lenses.

We can't shoot at faster shutter speeds without using a larger aperture, which will give insufficient depth of field. Turning on image stabilisation on a tripod opens up a whole can of worms - we'd much rather not go there. However what we can do is shoot at a slower shutter speed by reducing the scene illumination, so that's looking like the most likely solution at the moment.

(To pre-empt the idea that noise is dependent on light level and shutter speed, and this would skew the results, this isn't really true. The reason why it's often believed to be true is because the visibility of noise is highly dependent upon the colour temperature of the light source, and low light levels are strongly associated with low-colour temperature artificial light. However the higher noise in images shot under such lighting isn't because of the light level per se , but because the blue and green channels have to be amplified much further to achieve correct white balance.)
