Re: Importance of IS?

Was my main argument against buying Fuji. The high ISO quality is very good but because of the lacking IS some of the advantage is lost? But then I got the 20mm for G3, no IS, and it's looking rather good. You just have to be less "lazy" and more careful taking shots. In line with attempts to take fewer and better composed shots. And with the 35 mm maybe not much of a problem. More with the 60mm? And for video - which I seem to forget most of the time... And as camera and lens are rather small, a tripod could also be small.

Interesting discussion, very helpful.
