PanaLeica 12-60/2.8-4.0 OIS test support required


I'd like to start a small test for PL 12-60 owners, following up on my other thread here For this I'd like some of you early adopters of the PL 12-60 to do the following:


A - Mode, single shot


60mm focal length

OIS - ON (on Olympus bodies, make sure that lense IS is prioritized!)

Center AF field (using auto focus), or MF whichever you prefer!

Now please focus on something further away (e.g. a landscape etc. with some structure like tries which allow judging sharpness) where you can assume that the focus plane is equal for the left and right sides (e.g. no trees etc which are closer to you on the left than on the right side).

Take 10 shots handheld, trying to keep the AF field at the same point during all shots, then turn OFF OIS on the lense using the lense switch and take another 5 shots.

Take a look at the left sides of the 10 shots first, at 100% view and compare them for sharpness, then do the same for the right sides.

Finally do the same for the 5 shots without OIS and tell me what you see.
