You asked the following and I tried to reply, but the thread was maxed out:
I noticed the review of the E-5 indicates that the live view "zooms in" when starting a video clip. The E-PL1 does this only when one has the in-body Image Stabilization activated. Without the IS there is no cropping effect. This leads me to suspect that it may be the same with the E-5. Can someone who owns the E-5 check this and either confirm or refute my suspicion?
Just checked, and the E5 behaves in the same way as the E-PL1. No "zoom" if IS is off.
