Turning off imagae stabilization on Panasonic G5
Aug 5, 2014

As mentioned in one of my earlier post, my main camera is a Nikon D7100 , but I recently purchased the Panasonic G5 and a used 14-140mmm Panasonic lens.

My questions are:

1.  It would seem to make sense that since the lens already has the O.I.S built in that I would need to turn the O.I.S off in the camera menu?  If this is so, I can't seem to find how to disable this from any of the menus .

2. Unlike the Nikon Vr lens, which gives a slight hum when working, I do not hear any movement from the O.I.S on Panasonic lens, so how do I know that it is working correctly? I am concerned as it is a used 14-140mm which I paid almost $500 on ebay , and would like to know before I leave a positive feedback for the seller.

Thanks for all information.

Nikon D7100
