Do you think that the stabilization trend in lenses will lessen the use of tripods for you?
Yes, with an image stabilization lens tripods are only necessary in rare instances.

No, regardless of using image stabilization lenses, there’s simply no substitute for the image quality you get by using a tripod

I would use both, as each has its purposes and one doesn’t necessarily cancel the use of the other.

A number of photo schools still teach black and white film developing and printing.
I don't believe this helps photo students as digital is the future.

There's a strong trend towards fast lenses for both DSLR and mirrorless cameras.
I use fast lenses for low light work and when I want shallow depth of field.
56% (53 votes)
I use high ISO settings and image stabilization, in lenses or in-camera, to enable low light shooting.
18% (17 votes)
For me, it's a question of cost, and I know fast lenses are more expensive, so budget concerns dictate I use image stabilization
