Also turn it off when panning. It's a great lens but the IS system used isn't usable for panning (based on my personal results).

There is no need to turn off the IS on that lens. That version of the IS has a tripod-sensing feature.
Also, on that lens, the IS is either on or off and has no panning mode selection.

Why bother to turn off IS? You'll just forget to turn it back on later!

Years ago I did some testing to see just how much power IS actually comsumes. The number was rather low once it's working but when it's initiated there was a small spike to the reading but that was only for a fraction of a second.
