There's an old rule of thumb which says, the maximum usable exposure time for hand held shots (without IS) approximately equals 1 / focal length.
So let's say for 50mm, you should try to use no longer exposure time than 1/50s.
Of course its possible to bend the rule a little, so with proper technique you can easily get a high percentage of good shots at 50mm and 1/30s. However, it's very unlikely that you will get a sharp image at, let's say 50mm and 1/15s.
Hope that helps...
