I have not had much success getting the IS to really help me. Is it better to use with the EVF?

I never, ever, use a long zoom setting or the DTCs with the LCD panel. You need the camera against your face to get a stable shot. Think about it. Our eyes are in our head, which means we have A LOT of practice keeping our heads relatively still. It is almost impossible, on the other hand, to keep our hands still. Therefore make the camera a part of your head, not your hands.
