@Naveed - no problem. Have a good day and nice week :-) Thanks for reading.

@Barney- I realize this kind of opinion unchallenged may not be important to you. Too bad. You probably didn't grow up being gay :-)

Naveed- No, I don't " just want to fight." I am only replying to what you are saying. Yes, it's your opinion. And we are basically presenting not only our opinion but the fact that it's already more universal than what you think -whether you agree or not.

Your suggestion of "gays making up their own day" will simply be ignored.

Speaking for myself- I didn't call you a homophobe or ignorant. I don't believe that insulting you is the way to explore an argument and I don't see you as a bad person or anything.

Zvonimir Tosic: Interestingly, Pentax representative said that they have already experimented with sensor shift technology to achieve same goal as this, now advertised by Olympus (and Hassy in the past). But, Pentax admits, the result is a large size dataset, plenty of megapickles, but the quality of the picture does not improve.
So instead of delivering that — which obviously is not difficult — they would rather focus how to make native resolution even better.

Which is interesting, as it better sheds light on what Olympus really wants to achieve: a perception that their small cameras (which are indeed limited by sensor size and performance worse that others), are also competitors when it comes to large image sizes.

No, I only pretended the truth- that Pentax had it first. To which carver3d asked me to prove it and I did. There's nothing more to it.

Moreover - and part of my point- the E-3 did not have tilt correction, which the Pentax did. This is the part that Pentax had *years* before Olympus.

bskbo - one small point I want to highlight- sexual orientation is not a lifestyle. Those who want gay men as seen that they made a simple choice- that they can change- want to keep this myth.

Lifesyle is more about how you go about life, and what you do in your life like hobbies, work, etc. Someone who goes on Friday nights to drink to a bar with his buddies can be gay or straight. Someone who farms the land in the mountains can be gay or straight. Someone who wakes up every morning early to jog for 45 minutes before going to work can be gay or straight.

I think you get my gist.

Howard- please don't put words in my mouth and read what I said that car asked about. I said multi axis, not 5 axis. Way later on I mentioned what Olympus was doing. I don't understand how that changes the point which is that Pentax had multi axis IBIS first.

Read what I wrote again please.

Two people who love each other gay or straight can also celebrate this, and yes, in several parts of the world there are also gifts/cards/commercials targeted at gays for St. Valentines.

Look at what you said again- that gays can create their own legend or something else. Guess what, there are many gays that celebrate St. Valentines and they don't need to ask you for permission. The permission aspects comes in answer to directly what you said! Read it again. Your own words.

It's not whether it's sensitive or not. It's just basic common sense- look at what you are saying - basically that you can't have any sort of St. Valentines celebration amongst gays because St.Valentine's origin wasn't. Thats'w why I came up with a solid example of how things evolve/change.

I get from what you say you are trying to make a joke- but look at what you re saying for a second, and what you followed up with. I didn't take it as you hating gays per se, but it is this kind of ignorant meme that when someone who is growing up surrounded in a culture of "you are bad because you are gay" just keeps going.

Of course yo can expect such non sense meme to be challenged. Substitute any race you want or some other culture with your meme and perhaps you can see how odd that can look.

And you saying St. Valentine days is not associated with gay couples is also false depending where you are. It's not that it's associated with gay couples per se... it's that...

Zvonimir- that is fine, but the problem is that Olympus already proved that they were able to get notable gains in resolution data. The fact that the smaller sensor Olympus is using out resolves in this mode the Pentax K-3 is quite remarkable.

Nobody is saying what Pentax should do or not in order to increase resolution.You quoted the claim from Pentax and the claim as far as Olympus is concerned *has been proven wrong* already because Olympus *did achieve* better resolution.

Of course Olympus's solution has limitations, but it seems they are working to expand the operating window of this solution. So basically it doesn't matter what Pentax said regarding getting more data- Olympus *proved* they are getting more data with this approach. It's not theory.

I am not changing the terms of the question. This was what I said "... and Pentax had several axis IBIS long before Olympus." and what carver was daring me to provide evidence for- and I did.
Moreover, Pentax had it before the E-3 anyway, if we want to follow what you are saying.

Naveed- there are many customs that are celebrated today that have evolved.- for example Christmas is not when Jesus was born, and was done after a pagan rite to other Gods, but it was the way the church saw they could more easily convert others- so we have it now.

ST. Valentines is at this point, more about celebrating love between those special ones, and that includes gays. Gays certainly do not need your permission :-)

Lassoni - fate!
Howabout- the question was about my claim that Pentax had multi-axis IBIS long before Olympus. So yes, my answer proved the point.

Moreover, the Pentax mechanism other than gyros for measuring pitch & yaw is all that is necessary for the sensor to correct for those (see the Sony 5 axis ibis discussion elsewhere). The Olympus sensor also doe snot rotate along x & y even though Olympus 3d rendering animations show it doing so.

Raist3d: Wow, that is weird! So basically without a sony lens with IOS, you really don't have 5-axis IBIS? Man, they should explain this better. Software corrections vs optical are never better than the real optical ones.

I think it's innovative that they can use a lens OIS to finish the axes of IBIS but they should come lean on this. If I am using a prime lens (usually no OIS), then we don't have true 5-axis IBIS.

Thanks Ken- part of the issue is that Olympus own marketing materials show videos with a 3d rendering where their sensor clearly tilts. Then dpreview asked Sony with this expectation in mind, possibly misinterpreting what they were saying.

This effectively means Sony is just correcting the same way- just sometimes use the sensor in full to do it, or the lens OIS.

Thanks again.

ZeneticX: OMFG those are fracking huge lenses.... ops sorry wrong topic

@Barry - I wasn't talking about these lenses when I said that. I was talking about some past APS-C mount zooms. The only thing I was saying is I wonder if there was any collaboration with someone else for them or it's 100% Pentax/Ricoh, given Pentax has collaborated with other lens manufacturers in the past.

I am not expecting anyone to prove that they are NOT other designs. Yes, the onus is on me making the claim and all I am saying is I wonder if it's possible *because* Pentax has done so in the past. So my statement isn't unreasonable, I am not claiming any certainty here, just wondered a possibility.

These are two different things.

I was thinking of the Tokina collaboration, yes. As far as I know, some lenses are Tokina tweaked designs, not all Pentax designs. I remember the discussion where one of the Pentax Gold star lenses looked way too similar to a Tokina design- that doesn't suggest Pentax designed it- at least the core aspect of it.

I only say this because I know some companies have had some of their lenses designed by others (not all, just some). Basically I am not saying Pentax can't do it, but was wondering if as well, Pentax hired someone to do them. But yeah, Pentax certainly has know how- and so does Ricoh.

I wonder how much of these lenses are Pentax designs (or Ricoh designs) vs sub-contracting someone else.

Pentax had it first, and it had tilt. The E-3 body doesn't have tilt. Neither does the E-5 body. The OMD EM-5 is the first to have the 5-axis IBIS.

I would imagine you can turn "image stabilization" off. But I am not sure you can selectively turn it off vs the mechanical aspect of the IBIS.

caver3d- you can look at the Pentax 100D - the first one back in December 2006. Look at the 2nd page of features. That's X, Y and Z axis. Nobody else had something like this until Olympus further developed with the OMD EM-5 pretty much. And sure, the Olympus covers more axes, but doesn't take away the Pentax anti-shake is multi-axis, including tilt.
