Image Stabilization


For those who don't know about IS lenses, they contain small gyro sensors and servo actuated optical elements which correct for camera shake and thus stabilize the image and give higher sharpness then you'd otherwise get. While not as good as a tripod,...

The "L" lens is also nicer to use, has smoother focus, a tripod ring, a built in lens hood, doesn't rotate or extend duing focus and is a stop faster. All these things come into play along with image quality when answering the "is it worth it"...
