    yes why not?

    try it, mount on tripod
    manual focus and shoot with A mode
    change the aperture and see the results for yourself

    Shoot bikini gals F1.4 to avoid hand shake.

    Shoot old women F16 because no hand shake.

    #1 get closer to subject
    #2, better DOF
    #3, less visible hand shake.

    This is actually a very interesting poll...I'm surprised so many shoot at f2.8 and f2. Thought the newer crowd uses only zooms these days. Must be some serious prime lens users in this forum. That makes me

    Can I just check, will prime lens 50mm F1.8 provide lesser handshake than 18-135 telephoto?

    it all depends.. if u are comparing at the same apertures.. then i'd say yes only because the 50mm is lighter and probably easier to hold steady.. if not there's no difference..

    if u're talking about f/1.8, yes, because the larger aperture allows faster shutter speeds which can reduce (not eliminate) the effects of handshake..

    do note also that the focal length affects the effects of handshake, so u can only compare at 50mm.. at 18mm the effects of handshake will be much less than at 135mm (think about the angle of view and how a slight shift in the camera can move the image much further on a telephoto)
