Re: Canon 10-18mm. Image Stabilizer for background blur?

It's not an error.

On lenses with 2 IS settings, (I' m only familiar with IS on longish teles), the second setting is designed for panning with slow shutter speeds, where it will smooth out any vertical movement as you pan, thus creating a smooth horizontal backgroung blur. Depends on the speed of the subject obviously.
