    How is everyone using their IS lenses - IS on or off on the radian?

    In my experience IS is always better on! Haven't tried on the radian however.

    We usually turn off Canon IS, it seems that it cannot cope with high frequency vibration and sometimes made things worse for us.

    I find IS usually helps...it depends on the particular lens though. Most Canon IS seems to work well for me. I usually use the 24mm prime with IS, and 24-105 with IS.

    Good point Andy, I only use IS on the one that has IS ;)

    Jeff clued me in to how excellent the new 24mm with IS is!

    Yeah -- I'm just returning the f1.4 to B&H -- I didn't realize there was a 24 mm with IS so thanks for that information, Tabb.
    Better yet, the f2.8 24 mm only weighs 281 grams, compared with the f1.4 which weighs 650 grams. Less is better!

    Andy.
