Are IS Lenses Worth It?

Post  BonnieG on Sat Jun 07, 2008 9:15 am

I will most likely be getting a zoom lens for Disneyworld so I guess I just wanted some opinions on if it is worth the extra money to get an Image Stablization lens? TIA!

oh wow...tough question. If your lens is heavy or if you have camera shake like I do - they're a God send but out of my price range. I don't have any experience with them personally - but I've heard great things about it.

For a longer zoom, I would. I really like the IS on my 70-300 zoom. I do turn it off occasionally.
For a small zoom or a shorter prime, it may not be as advantageous.
