Re: OIS not used for stills exposures...

Excellent, thanks so much for following up Richard.

I need to try it out on my 45-200 and see what it does as well. Someone tried a 100-300 with mixed results.

So it would seem, at least based on the 12-35mm that it is only certain lenses.

While you are looking at this thread, have you been able to reproduce the no IBIS with legacy lenses in video mode? A lot of folks have reproduced this problem and it would be a nice one to elevate up to Olympus.

I've just done a series of tests with the 12-35mm F2.8 (the first Panasonic lens with an OIS switch that I could lay my hands on), and I'm getting better results with OIS on than off, every time.

I've tried changing the IS with half-press setting and I still get the same result. OIS produces consistently sharp shots at 1/13th, OIS off doesn't.
