Got any good stabilized, large aperture, standard zooms in your bag of tricks?
This is one of the reason I gave to my spouse for going to the Zeiss 24-70 f/2.8 as the IS is shifted to the body of the camera!

Yeah. I switched to Nikon because I wanted a large aperture medium telephoto lens that didn't cost an arm and a leg. Now I miss my Tamron 17-50/2.8 on a stabilized body.

Depending on what you are shooting IS can also pay off in panning shots where you want to keep the subject sharp and diffuse the background to show the motion, this is mode 2 on Canon glass that has this feature. IS will also help with mirror slap even when you have an "in range" shutter speed. It can often make the difference between relatively sharp and tack sharp.
