Keep it off - See these pics

I wrote two threads about this over at m43s.com. The IBIS on the PM2 makes my 40-150 look like garbage. Off, however, and bumping up the ISO, the lens is a champ.  The following test was based on several shots taken with the Sigma 30 handheld.  I think I took 10 shots with it on and 10 with it off at around 1/15 of a second.  Only 2 handheld were good, but they were SHARP.  About 4 were usable with IBIS on, but as you can see, they are systematically not sharp.

And, after living with it for a while, here's my conclusive thread: http://www.mu-43.com/showthread.php?t=63934

5-axis might be better but no one has seemed to do the comparisons that I did with a 5-axis camera.

I do know that 2-axis you might want to hit ISO1600 before turning it on.
