em5: tragic if true ...
May 7, 2012

does anyone concur with the findings of this review site that:

While you may have better results with the stabilization system anecdotally or in more naturalistic environments, we didn’t find that any of the stabilization modes were effective at this test, with all modes (including turning it off entirely) ... /

and:

/ ... our test conditions do not recognize any improvement from the system over simply leaving it off at these particular conditions./

here is the url:

http://www.digitalcamerainfo.com/content/Olympus-OM-D-E-M5-Digital-Camera-Review/Sharpness.htm

if you read their methods of testing image stabilization at:

http://www.digitalcamerainfo.com/content/How-we-test-digital-cameras-20069.htm#resolution

you would think that the em5 should breeze through the test with scores substantially improved over other cameras with 'traditional' stabilization schemas.

this would be horrible news for me as image stabilization was one of the major features that influenced my purchase since the panasonic bodies lack it and their lenses are priced sky high as a consequence.

thanks,
