yes, i have the 28-135 IS.. and you can hear it and feel it very slightly, but it is really only noticeable without any other distractions.. the reason that the photographer that took that picture got a sharp pic at 1/2 second is he was sitting and braced his elbows on his knees, which will greatly increases your steadiness as does leaning against a wall or doorframe..

Thank you Hands80 and macro for your replies. At least now I don't need to
send the lens for servicing. I will experiment :|more later on.

Cool, got the shake and noise after closing windows:lol: My room is next to a highway
so always quite noisy.

Now comes to the power consumption. I realized that some reviews mentioned this
lens consumes more power than non IS lens, is the difference dramatic or small?

Thank you.

I havnen't noticed any significant difference in battery consumption... IS works only for a second or two while half pressing the shutter and composing your shot and of course during exposure. I always turn IS off when the light is sufficient to shoot at least at 1/100 and higher speeds, to avoid accidental "compensation" and therefore blurry pictures.*

i don't notice a difference in power consumption.. i actually leave mine on at all times just to ensure critical sharpness in case i accidentally "compensate"aka "flinch"
