Is the IS a must option to have and when would I need it? Do you alway keep it on or just some times?

I bought a Canon EF 75-300mm f4-5.6 USM lens when I bought my camera, because I knew I wouldn't have money for more lenses for a while, and I wanted a "reach out and touch someone" sort of lens. I have ended up using the long end quite a bit for various things, although it's the very devil to hold a 300MM lens still without IS. This is the lens I bought:

75-300mm Canon USM 4-5.6

It would be nice to have a bit more wide-angle, but I think I made a good choice. I could *not* afford the "white lens" version of the 70-200mm, so that wasn't an option. I sure would like to have one, but I think I'd rather have the new 17-85mm IS USM EF-S lens that is coming out soon to compliment the 20D. That would make a nice compliment to what I already have.

What was that shot at... a 1/250th??

Try dragging out the shutter to a 1/60th...or a 1/30th.. now you will benefit from an IS 70-200 lens..

I use a tripod when shooting at my waterfall location and I am using the old version of that lens w/o IS. they are both fine but obviously the IS version is more versatile than the version without..

I shot her at a 1/60th because she was shivering and I needed to stop her motion...on other days, when it was warmer out, I have gown down to a 1/30th...

The image stabilizer is useful in numerous situations. I find it comes in handy while shooting outdoors.

The downside is the image stabilizer may cause the viewfinder image to shift and throw off your composition. If I'm shooting with studio lighting I turn off the image stabilizer, since the exposure from studio strobes is very short (shorter than 1/500 sec. in most instances).

I aksed the same question before I bought mine (a year or so ago) and the people who had owned both (IS and non-IS) nearly all said go for the IS, since I planned on keeping it a lonnng time the extra money for the IS was not a issue.

It is a great lens and I leave the IS on whenever I shoot outside...
