When is a tripod redundant?

Almost always :)

Unless you shoot landscape photos for NG at dusk, or achictecutre HDR or night photos.

For normal use (weddings, reports, family, action...etc.) there is simply no time and space to use a tripod.

If your question was related to how low a shutter speed can we handhold, I'd say I can get away with as low as 1/20 (sometimes even lower) with the 24-70. I shoot a burst, and one picture always comes out sharp
