Getting better pictures

Before I got my Tamron 17-50 2.8 Di II I was so worried about getting a lens with IS, as I thought that would get me better pictures. My Tamron does not have IS, but I have found through using it one of the main reasons for some of my lack of sharpness in some of my photos. I had been relying so heavily on IS with my 18-135 that I let my shutter speeds sink dangerously low, and it caused some blur. Fast shutter speeds really help with image sharpness. I now really move around my ISO to keep my shutter speed of at least 80.

I have also been moving to manual and now shoot about 75% manual. For me I am learning, but once I get the hang of it I see myself shooting 60-70% manual especially since I primarily do landscape and stills.
