you need a tripod if you’re planning on getting tack sharp images.

A disclaimer or two.  Frequently I use a tripod to get shots that are not tack sharp.  And, you don’t need a tripod to get tack sharp shots, but you do need to understand what you are attempting and a good grip helps.

If you are shooting a stationary object, a tripod can easily get you a sharp shot.  If your subject is moving you may not get a sharp shot with a tripod.  When doing something like lens focus adjustment, a tripod can be a big help.
