I have the Sigma 70-200 F2.8 lens with no OS and shoot sharp photos no problem, it's just down to your shutter speed really.

OS will only really help out on slower shutter speeds, say less than 1/125th

I'll add I have shot sharp photos at 1/60th, but it's hit or miss at that speed.

Edit: Is OS necessary? no, does it come in handy sometimes... yes, but none of my lenses have OS, i just use a tripod for shots requiring slow shutter speeds

You can always up the ISO to help you gain shutter speed with the downside of added noise.

Cheers for your answer I can get an 18-200mm for around £100 but with OS about £180 so was just wondering if it was worth spending extra ???

In my opinion no, it's not worth the extra as it's nearly double the price.

Depends on what you are taking pictures of....and it can come in handy when shooting at longer focal lengths as the effect of movement is increased but it isn't 'necessary' IMO as with practice you can shoot slower speeds handheld and as has been mentioned a tripod is handy, all my lenses are used on manual and can get a sharp pic with a fixed 180mm 2.8 at 1/15th but I've been doing it for years and specialise in low light photography so comes with experience.

It's not neccessary, but it helps a lot - should add 2 stops.
