Funny thing: The IBIS is so good on the 5.3 that I find myself leaving the tripod at home.
That's a game changer for me. I don't mind working with a tripod in certain conditions, but most of the time, it just slows me down, and prefer to work without one.
Also, I do a lot of multi-shot wide panoramas, taken with a vertically oriented camera - for maximum height; you don't need more width on each shot - you're already taking at least say 5 or 6 shots anyway, which are stitched together side by side. Panoramas come out MUCH better if taken from a tripod.IBIS is good, but there are a lot of situations were I would need a tripod anyway.
I don't see myself taking 3 seconds pictures relying on IBIS.
And sometimes it's 30 seconds... or more... or live composite, etc... etc...
