    Default How important OIS/VR/AS in digital camera to you?

    All camera expert, I just curious, do you think it's important a camera with OIS/VR/AS feature? So far for dSLR, I know only Konica Minolta 5D & 7D have Anti Shake in the body, the rest of the brand, seem integrated in the lens.

    good to have but not essential. I used to have an IS lens but sold it away and continue to be happily taking pictures but have to clarify that for my style of shooting, freezing action is more important and hence i need fast shutter speeds more than compensation for camera shake.

    it is more required for sudden shots / sports.

    Or for those slower lens. But then again, with the amount yuou have to pay for the VR, might as well get faster lens haha.

    From where I see, it would be more useful for very wide ranged zoom lens which tends to be slow, eg 18-200.

    Or and extra for the trinity zoom. or ultrazoom.

    Not 100% necessary, if you got money it's better to get f/2.8 lens.. But IS is a good-to-have thing for those times that you need it..

    Useful to have but not really necessary.
