Just got the camera home and wanted to see what it could do against my old Dimage 7. For now I have only gone for the kit lens (18-70mm, 3.5-5.6)until I know what I really want (and can afford), although I do have a longer zoom lens on order for sports and nature.

The first 2 were taken at 70mm (105mm equiv), f/5.6, 1/5s, handheld..... the anti-shake is amazing!!!! I can't remember the settings on the 3rd shot.

Thanks Darby.

I was just looking at my poor dejected Dimage 7, so decided to take a shot of it.

Yep... Now, I can sometimes get a good shot with a camera that does not have antishakeat 1/8 second, if I try *real* hard to control my breathing,smoothly squeeze the shutter button, etc., at shorter focal lengths, about 1 out of 3 shots. :-)

But a hand held closeup at 1/5 second at a 105mm equivalent focal length. Yes... antishake is pretty neat!

We need to tell KM they got the specs wrong on it (2 to 3 stops slower shutter speeds). LOL

I think it is all down to the quality of the photographer..... don't you?!?! :G

Actually, that probably has a lot to do with it.

You can probably hold it pretty steady without the antishake and have a smooth "trigger finger". So, it's giving you a few extra stops above what you'd normally be able to get.

Ishoot at around 1/15 second pretty darn often with a little pocket cam I've got.

I can get away withit at full wide angle (39mm equivalent) ifI'm careful (and when I'm shooting at shutter speeds that slow, I always am). I think it's probably "second nature" by now.

I shoot at 1/8 second from time to time. But, my "hit" rate drops at 1/8 second with it, even at full wide angle (39mm equivalent on a little Konica KD-510z I keep with me).

I could never get away with what I've gotten away with using antishake so far wth the 5D though.. That's for sure (and you don't have mirror slap with the pocket camera either).

I'm wondering why they even need the mirror lockup feature ASworks so darn well (I'm assuming that it must be stabilzing the shake caused bymirror slap, too).;-)
