The problem is not with the lens, but with the design of the mechanical shutter inn those cameras. The shutter produces a lot of vibration, and that can be heard in the amount of noise that it makes when activated. That vibration gets transferred to the 14-140mm.

There might be some mis info here, sorry to say it...

I know the shutter is causing the problem but the issue is made worse by the IS system in the 14-140

14~140 f/3.5 is a problem without doubt. It has very sensitive OIS that even under the new m-shutter of GX85, problem still exist.

The other 2 are the 14~42PZ and 45~200.

aa couple of others (12-35 and 35-100 F2.8s ) , m

The two f/2.8 zoom lenses, as well as the 12~32, 14~45, 14~42 mk-II, the two 12~60, 45~150 are basically immune from SS.

Not sure on 100~300 (rarely heard about it).a

The 100~400, 200 and 50~200 etc relative special lenses are also not discussed.

than other IS lenses like the 45-200, 45-150 and not at all in some like the 14-42-II and its rarely an issue with non stabilized lenses and the GX8 (moreso with the GX1)

Yes, panny shutter shock is generally related to over sensitive OIS of the lens plus a noisy m-shutter.

So far the IBIS on GX85 & G85 shows no SS on non OIS lenses like Oly bodies will. Might be all panny IBIS bodies already use the new m-shutter...
