Current stabilization technology is really good. I can quite regularly get sharp images with my 80-400 mm f/4.5-5.6G VR at 1/60th, hand-held.....but I would never shoot trains that way. It's nice to know I can get away with it in a pinch, but if it's a shot I can't repeat, I'm jacking the ISO and getting as much shutter speed as I can.

My RP stuff is here.

Link to my Flickr Albums. Lots of Steam Railroad stuff there from all over the US.
