If you have a slow-moving subject that can be frozen sufficiently at 1/50th, and you need 1/400th to freeze handshake, would you say IS helps you to capture a good shot of that slow-moving subject?

Well, we know that YOU would say it does, Lee. You have left us all in no doubt about that!

Of course it would. If you can't hold still at 1/50th on a stationary subject, you can't do it on a moving subject either. And if 1/50th is all you need to freeze that slow moving subject, why pump ISO up 3 whole stops just to get 1/400th to help with handshake? I'll take ISO 400 over ISO 3200 any day, and I'll take a shot without handshake versus one with handshake as well - even on a slow-moving subject.

Yeah, yeah. No need to repeat yourself. We know very well, your take on the matter, because you have NOT failed to get it across.
