I figured that much. But which would you say those are? And where would you draw the borderline between those where IS is of help and those where it isn't?

I tend to use the old rule of thumb of keeping the shutter speed at the 135 format focal length and above. That works for me. I can go slower if I steady myself against a wall or tree, and I'll go faster for moving subjects. IBIS won't help for moving subjects, and even if I do use it I prefer to keep a sensible shutter speed when possible.
