>>What shutter speeds are you seeing?
Inside, with my kit lens and ISO800, no flash, the shutter speed can be anywhere between 50 and 100 (I don't try to shoot when it's too dark, or I use the flash). This would improve with a constant f/2.8, so with the focal lengths I use it should be good even without VC/IS

For me, this is very interesting.

That's a good one
I'll surely try to avoid it.
