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...

okay cause it could save me a bit of money when i go to buy my 40d. but i guess you're right because i will be shooting a little of everything from action to long exposure.

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.
