You should at least give P mode a try by taking some test shots and trying some of the settings such as single (center) area focus, shoot only IS and, when needed, Exposure Compensation and White Balance. . .

Hi Gail

I have a question about using shoot only IS, since I haven't tested it at all or done the technical research. The question stems from my years of use of IS lenses on Full Frame, where it usually takes the IS group mechanism a few milleseconds to stabilize after being engaged. If you don't wait, you can get fuzzy or distorted images. Wait being a broad term, since we are only talking fractions of a second. But I do always sub-consiously hold the shutter button halfway for a split second to compensate. Has the IS in this cam been upgraded so much that I no longer have to? What has your experience been for sharpness using shoot only IS?

Thanks,
Vision
