I never do, I always say "some can do it, some can't", it's just that this relatively healthy 71 yr old can manage 600mm equivalent, so it would be interesting to see what 1200mm equivalent does with me. I keep saying everyone should take bunches of shots at all speeds at tele and find their own limits.

I do have a Nikon 180/2.8 plus high quality 2x tele converter so maybe that's worth a play with to see what the 2x digital tele converter does with that 1440mm equivalent result, but it would be IBIS and not OIS so framing hand-held would be a lottery.

The E-PL5 with 45-150mm OIS enabled makes live view at tele rather nice and smooth to frame, the jitter is all gone.
