What ? Really ?  Do you know what you are taliking about ?

Whilst I don't have the E-M5 with it's advanced 5 axis IBIS   I have used Olympus' 3 axis IBIS on my 4/3 cameras and now on my E-P3. It is no problem for me to handhold the E-P3 at 1/6 and achieve sharp enough photos to print. The photos below were taken after I read your silly comment using the lens that was currently on the E-P3 (the 4/3 25mm f2.8 pancake), which isn't an outstanding lens but still quite good, all handheld and without the benefit of the VF2 viewfinder with which I could achieve even lower shutter speeds. Nothing special about the photos, just quickies of my brick gatepost. See below,

1/6 second

1/8th second

1/10th second

1/15th second

Raws processed in OV2 with contrast +1 and sharpness set to zero, no anti-shock.

And I believe you could do better with the E-M5
