Still waiting for my X-E1, but I have another image-stabilized lens (not for X-series) that always uses power, whether IS is on or off.  When off, it uses power to center the IS optic.

I wonder if this has any sort of impact on battery life in the X-E1 or Xpro1.  If so, non-IS lenses such as the 35mm will give longer battery life.

Has anyone with more than one lens tried this test?
