Re: 12-50 power zoom flickering exposure during zoom

Very annoying effect.

I made a video of the soccer-game of my 7 year old son today with the EM5 and when zooming get the flickering effect too.

Also the color of the grass changes when you pan around. Not to forget the shift in focus that can be a little off at times.
Before I used a phonecamera with much better results.

I used the 12-50mm and see no point in developing a movielens with electrical zoom if the results are so bad. I dont even want to put it on the soccerteam's webpage!

I hope Olympus can do something about this because if this gets out to much no-one will buy this zoom anymore, I think...

This is my only negative point about this wonderful camera...

Or maybe the settings for this situation have to be considered like aperture, focus lock etc.
