Yes, very true. Besides, I took a lot of pictures with normal-speed film in dull light and at dusk or near darkness. Obviously the shutter speed usable depended on the lens and the support, but with a standard 35-50mm lenses I had no trouble getting pictures down to 1/15 acceptably sharp handheld (appropriately braced) and up to a few minutes with a pocket hand-tripod.
Mind you, that was in those far-off pre-pixel-peeping days!

I do find IBIS & OSS very useful with teles, though if you need to get slower than you can hand-hold with normal FL lenses, you can get trouble with the subject moving, which neither IBIS nor OSS can cure!
