Well that is indeed you think about it. Whether it make sense to you or not.

More to that. Try raise your hand and shot without IS. See how well you can get a good shot. I was in an event taking shots, crowded. The guy next to me was surprise I am able to raise my hand and take shots yet the pictures looks good enough. He approached me asked if my lens has IS/VR. I was about to explain, but, decided why bother. Just briefly told him about IS in-body but he seems confused.

Even with ladder, you may still end up raising your hand to take shots, if the people in front of you started all raising their hands or waving their banners.
