oluv: seems to have exactly the same IBIS problems like E-PL3 and other olympus cameas. image P9140080 was taken at 1/160 but not a single point is really sharp.

i had the same with shutter speeds between 1/100 and 1/200, the IBIS was producing blur then. what a pity, that olympus hasn't fixed this, i mean this is already their 3rd or 4th camera generation!

I noted this tendency on my E-PL1 right off. One wishes "Auto IS" would know to turn itself off when the shutter speed is sufficient to make its use unnecessary!

My solution is to simply leave the IBIS turned off unless I'm shooting low-light with no tripod. Since the majority of my photos are handheld with plenty of light, it hasn't been much of an hassle.

Oh wow... my Instagram photos are going to look SO good now [joking]!

Anyway, this is the next logical step from wi-fi cameras, right? Instead of bieng limited to available, open wi-fi networks, you're connected [potentially] anywhere.

This is how camera manufacturers take amateur photography back from cell phones -- by offering the ability to instantly share in a manner with which they are already familiar?

Downsides? Effing data plan costs to take advantage of the camera's capabilities -- although, if I had this thing, I'd go back to a cheap just-a-phone and make this my only "smart" device. I wonder if it will be available with radios for all carriers.
