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.

Amen! I could never had a camera without a viewfinder. Chipmunk looks super! How large of a print do you think you could do, with pp, and still have it look good? (I know "good" is relative).

I have printed 8.5x11 from this kind of a file without it showing much artifact at all. Larger than that would require special treatment. As in some noise reduction, and allegoric up-sizing, then printing. You might squeeze out an 11x14 on a standard 240dpi printer.

Of course at the extreme, I have printed, with the above trickery, from SX40HS files at 1680mm (2x digital tel-converter) to vertical banner size where the print was 5 feet tall. And it looked good.
