IS is important in low light or slow shutter speed condition.

In actual fact, it is very important when you know that your hand is not stable.

Big LCD is only for preference. Some people prefer big so that when during play back time, you can see the picture clearer. While some find that it is easier to frame the shot.

Hope this helps you.

Btw, my friend got his A570 for $330 @ Sim Lim AP

For $70/- extra, get the A570-IS anytime !

Anti-shake feature with come in handy in low light / indoor condition.
And for the features/controls at such price, really value for money.

A540 - 2.5" - 85,000
A550 - 2.0" - 86,000
A570IS - 2.5" - 115,000
A95 - 1.8" - 118,000

I hope this figures mean something for u..

Place them side by side and u shall see the difference..by having a higher pixel count, its more pleasant to view the image on the LCD..

A570IS for me anythime..some more got IS..
