Re: How limiting is lack of image stabilization in Pany bodies?

I'm not trying to infer the effectiveness of the Pens' IBIS, having owned two. It's just OK at short focal lengths, and like most IBIS, pretty much folds up and blows away at long focal lengths. the OMD's IBIS is not only terrific in the magnitude of the improvement it imparts, but has legs-working essentially as well at long focal lengths as with short ones. Other than the OMD, only the Nikon 70-200/2.8VR that a co-worker let me try impressed me as offering a truly substantial stabilization effect in the telephoto range.

I've not tried an E3, but I think there's every chance its IBIS is better than the Pens. It really can't be worse.
