I've never had IS on any lens so never miss it. And I almost always have the minimum shutter speed set to faster than the longest FL. I use 2 x 1D4s with a super wide on one (12-22mm) & an 80-200mmL on the other Both cameras set to Av & auto ISO. Perfect images every time. Who needs IS? Not me.

All my images that I post to Picasaweb (about 20,000 images) are licensed under Creative Commons BY-NC-ND.
In the few cases that I've become aware of where commercial organisations have used an image without consent or payment (& in every case it's a newspaper), they usually then pay up when I point out their infringement.
