I like Vibration control in my lenses, then again I'm old and shakey and can't seem to hold a camera steady. For me paying the extra for VC,IS,OS or whatever the camera company is calling it this year is well worth the extra money. Case in point; I have a Canon 70-200mm f2.8L non IS lens that never gets used as I just don't seem to be able to hold it steady enough to get a good shot. At least having one white Canon lens with a red ring does make my other gear look good.
Comments always welcome.
