Keeping it alive, Lisa......

In theory it works but the (OIS switchless) lens will default to no lens stabilisation when on the Oly bodies. Body stabilisation needs to be used.

The general advice with Olympus stabilisation is to leave it off until really needed as it can cause blur and weird things at what might be considered safe shutter speeds.

I recall that many people have reported problems with this lens but others swear that it is good, I dunno, I'm confused.

Meanwhile, let's see if this bump brings a real owner to light.
