Have been working on a book of images, many of them landscapes, taken during our recent trip to the Yorkshire Dales.

Have been disappointed with lack of detail in many of them and am wondering if I had turned off the stabilizer, as you have recommended numerous times, if my images would have been better.

Have you made any side by side tests of stabilizer on/off images?

With my EPM1 and EPL5, I find that if I have shutter shock evident in the photo, it is when the stabilizer is ON. Even when SS is not clearly discernible, I get far sharper photos when IBIS is OFF.

I know there is no "Official" evidence that there is a link between SS and IBIS but that is my experience.
