Plus, if I decide to go telephoto, I want to get something with a STUPID zoom range. I'll probably start with a cheaper 100-400mm (is it worth it?) or just drop the dollar and get anything that goes up to 600mm.

I want to shoot grasshoppers.
They say 1/focal length to be safe, i can get sharp shots at 200mm at probably as low as 1/125. Just takes practice, like anything else.

I typically use it for sports so i prefer to be around 1/400 at least in which case the IS does nothing. I rarely use something that long indoors so it's not usually an issue.
