4. One should keep in mind that the standard shutter-speed rule of 1/EFL, which in this case would translate to 1/150 is considered a pretty liberal one these digital days. Many would say that 1/2xEFL is more in line with what you need for tack-sharp results.

5. Your mileage may vary. I can only speak for myself, and my particular copy of lens and body.

I have tested mine thoroughfully too and have come to the same conclusion. Without the grip, I try to use at least 1/320 sec. Faster is always better; with the grip I get better results (about one stop slower at 1/200). I like to use F4-F5.6 and 400 ISOs with that lens. Outdoors, in daylight it isn't too difficult to keep fast speeds, because of its F1.8 largest aperture.

i use the 1/8th second antishock systematically too : it makes a real difference with that lens.
