Wow, your pictures are amazing!

When shooting handheld, what shutter speed do you usually use?

thanks, it varies depending on the subject.

Birds in flight I try to keep above 1/1000th sec, 1/1600th+ is better but I have shot below 1/400th and got decent results.

static macro shots 1/400th + if possible but down below 1/100th sec if conditions are poor. For Bees and the like in flight, as for Birds in Flight

Studio work, 1/60th - 1/200th depending on the action

Flowers and the like, whatever is relevant to the shot I'm after, I've had excellent results at 1/13th sec hand-held

That's why I like the IBIS system so much, I find it remarkably versatile with the m4/3rds lenses and an excellent tool when shooting with"Legacy Lenses"
