Did I miss something?? No IBIS with MF lenses?
Jun 21, 2012

I was away for 2 weeks in the Canadian Rockies happily shooting an EM5 and GH2 with my reg43 14-54II and 70-300. More on that later.

In the interim one of the posts here suggest that I may have missed the realization (fact?) that the 5-axis IBIS doesnt work with MF lenses.... Has that been confirmed.

I'm talking about STILLS only.

My own experience using a 105mm Nikon Macro lens is that IBIS DID help with any speed slower than (1/half of focal length) but was actually detrimental when shooting at faster speeds (in this case faster than 1/50th)
