I don't think thats completely true....I did notice a difference with and without AS one time when my AS was left off from previous day of portrait shooting. I was surprise at the amount of bad shots of the carI got until I noticed it was off.
The difference must have been in the amount of hand shake therefore giving you bad shots with it off. The AS has no wayof measuring and compensating for subject movement.

It is surprising. I never see an advantage while panning. Now, about the AS: will leaving it on all the time kill it sooner? I am looking at a time scale of 3 to 4 years. I know digicams don't survive long enough, but I'd like to get the most mileage out of my two bodies.

correct - AS will not help while panning

don't worry about life expectancy, while it's a nice touch, after it breaks down you still have a perfectly good camera

Thats what I am getting at though, when you are holding a 300/4 tracking an object it does help with the hand shake situation with AS on rather than off.
