Yes, it does! I'm losing images from a 50mm and even at 24-30mm from shake at 1/30 sec or 1/15 sec.
And there's no way to correct for this in pp :cry:
But I'm an old man...

And get a tripod, monopod or an other little tripod or Gorillapod that will help prevent camera shake.

But if you are hand-holding then IS is a must.
