Weird, I was reading a thread where someone was asking about the 4x video teleconverter feature of the E-PL5 and suddenly the whole thread was deleted. It wasn't my fault, I'm sure......

Meanwhile I found where it is mentioned http://asia.olympus-imaging.com/products/dslr/epl5/feature/06/

And my thoughts are that it is a good idea but the 4x combined with the dreadful video pixel shifting of the Pens then it could be a shaky jello disaster. Best to only try it with an OIS lens and or a tripod.

I agree with you, I doubt that it will be terribly effective with the 3 axis IS of the PENs, especially if they use the software stabilisation. I'll wait for a 5 axis IS implementation, but it is really encouraging to see it introduced. For me, it was a really positive feature of the GH2.
