"Lens I.S. Priority" on E-PL5, allows me to use any Panny OIS lens?
Nov 3, 2012

It's my understanding that on previous Olympus bodies, if you attached a Panasonic lens with OIS that does not have an OIS on/off switch, the OIS would default to off and there was no way to enable it.

Is this improved on the E-PL5 with the new Lens I.S. Priority setting, meaning does the camera now turn on OIS on these lenses without a switch? Or do you still need to have a lens with a physical OIS on/off switch?

I don't have a Panasonic lens with OIS to test. If anyone knows or could try, I'd really appreciate it.
