Sounds like a faulty IBIS, which seems to be the most common failure point. They are coming on stream now so they should be able to swap it out straight away.

Annoying, but it is a nice camera and you will enjoy the replacement.

Me, I still don't like IBIS.

To the OP: Sorry to hear this, nothing more disappointing than waiting and then...

I agree Louis, although I've used mine to effect at times with my EPL1..I've also ruined a few leaving it on at a 60th or 100th, inadvertently. A post, tree, bench or a rock makes a good IBIS even without a tripod, as does sitting at a table with a persons elbows for support. IS adds complexity, which to me is always problematical, and for anything moving at all, it's not effective. It's OK I guess, but my own opinion is that I could live without it.
