Generaly I agree with you. If you use medium lens like 24-105 you don't need IS but if you use tele zoom 100-300 especially in part closer to 300 you should use IS or tripod. Tom has Canon 350D and in his camera this 300 will be change in 480. Maybe you can keep your camera without move on this maximum zoom but I didn't try do that.th0m said:- Why do you need IS?
I used the tripod only during the night. The night pics are sharp.Urban Dave said:I can't understand, 200 only with tripod? Which were the lights conditions?
Thanks for you advice but 28-70mm is not enough. I need a little bit more zoom. 28-100mm or 28-120mm would be better.th0m said:Yes you can. In my first post here I suggested a Tamron 28-70 2.8 and a Sigma 70-300 APO. These are both decent lenses for their respective prices. The Sigma is definitely not the best in its class, but with the limited budget, it will probably get the job done.
