Re: bad lens

Thanks Sam. I figured as such. Interestingly when I turned IS off it did get slightly better, but slightly being the key here so there was still an issue. I will try the lens both on another m4/3 body at the store and also ask to try another 45mm if they have one to see how that behaves on my E-M5.

My Panny 25mm f/1.4 does not do this so I would like to think the body is not a real issue here but maybe the longer focal lenght of the 45mm and a potential IS issue with my E-M5 may cause it to react this way? Anyways I will likely get an answer once I can test it all out, hopefully later today.

my copy of Oly45 has never done this. It's almost perfect. To me the render characteristics and sharpness are very similar to the Pentax 77.
