You have a defective IS unit, that's what causes that. I know because my first OM-D had a similar problem when I held the thing in portrait orientation, it becomes more apparent at telephoto end I bet. Just get it replaced.

Was that your youtube video where the OMD was rotated and it did exactly what the OP showed with pink/blue bands?

BTW, I dropped an OMD (don't tell the owner ... actually he knows) on a hard floor, and it still works OK. Bent the #%#^ out of the filter ring on my lens though.

No not my video. Once I found out about the issue I just got my OM-D replaced as it is obviously a defect. The change also resulted in a switch form the black to the silver model. Having had both, I think I like the silver slightly more
