That wouldn't be my guess. The OIS of the 14-45 performs very well in my experience.

I went and took the same series again, but with 14-45 I got nearer to the subject to give it the same chances when comparing to the 50mm Minolta.

Yes, s_grins, OIS was "ON", now I tried both with OIS on and off and I can see no difference. And still, the Minolta is better.
Perhaps I should have tried MF? But then, I use the 14-45 with AF 99% of the time, so I think, it is more realistic this way.
