    i have a question.

    my question is:
    is image stabilization really worth an extra hundred bucks?
    i'm planning on buying an dslr this summer and the olympus e-510 or e-410 seem perfect for me. and since the only real difference between the two is image stabilization i was wondering if you think i should spend the extra money.

    EDIT: i just went to the olympus website and looked up the e-410, and there it says that there is image stabilization built into the body of the camera. which leaves me thinking, what exactly IS the difference between the two?

    Yes IS is worth extra money. It stops you missing shots on a regular basis.

    'Tough' meant it was an uncompromising image, something that came from your gut, out of instinct, raw, of the moment, something that couldn’t be described in any other way. So it was tough. Tough to like, tough to see, tough to make, tough to understand. The tougher they were the more beautiful they became.

    IS is great for people who have a tenancy towards the shakes. There's noting worse then a self blurred image, believe my wife takes dozens of them!!! All joking aside, the IS lenses are definitely worth the extra $$$!!!
