Yes thank you...

I never used IS with my E-5 but with the M-1 with its electronic shutter, I noticed something. When I was trying to center on the image I wanted, the image jittered around a bit. (Not something you would see with the E-5's live viewfinder.) Anyway, with IS auto on I discovered that the image would lock instantly and there was no more jitter as I followed the bird.

So I have used it ever since,
Hope that helps.

... that is helpful.  There is a lot to learn jumping from an E-500 to an E-M1 so I haven't fooled around with all the possible settings yet leaving IS on the first choice.  Since most of my subjects are static, IS-1 is probably the best setting to avoid camera shake when I'm shooting long, hand-held in dim light and perhaps don't want to crack up the ISO too much.  However, I want to improve my panning skills with BIF this year so that was why I was asking you.

Thanks again.

'When nothing seems to help, I go and look at a stonecutter hammering away at
his rock perhaps a hundred times without as much as a crack showing in it.
Yet at the hundred and first blow it will split in two,
and I know it was not that blow that did it,
but all that had gone before.'
-- Jacob Riis (1849 - 1914)
Stay Well,
