Re: E-M5 Rattlesnaking: Sources, Solutions, Ramifications

You're saying that you experienced ratllesnaking
with both the kit lens and the 45mm 1,8...

I find this very troubling, it's the first time I've heard that.

Up to now the only rattlesnaking problems reported
were with the Pana/Leica 25mm 1.4.

Anybody else have experienced this problem?
If this is the case I'll reevaluate my choice.
I surely would prefer a silent camera. (IBIS hum being acceptable)

My findings so far:

I encountered three different types of "Rattlesnaking" in that they have different sources and different solution to overcome/workaround. Two of them are reproducible and may be intended behavior by Olympus, the third may even be one of them, but its solution was different. The first two I describe here happen with both an Olmypus 45/1.8 and the the 12-50 kit lens, the only difference is that the kit lens' aperture is a lot smaller and a lot quieter.
