VC is for amateurs. Pros use flash and/or high shutter speeds to freeze action (weddings, ...)

Silly generalisation from a non pro.

Maybe it's a generalisation but deep inside you know it's the truth. The target users of such expensive lens are pros that mainly shoot events and always use flash. If you have any doubts please feel free to indicate me a pro photographer that uses that lens in low light without flash and complain for the lack of stabilization.

Still in doubt? Look at the Canon side, because apparently they don't need IS as well...
