Re: Mallards and Merganser

No, Roy. The lens has its own IS and a switch to turn it on and off. It doesn't work like Sync IS does with the 12-100, not that well. It might add something to body IS. I don't remember what OLY said about that. You can probably find the announcement on DPreview or in an independent review on the internet.

I don't know if it's better to use lens IS with an IS body or not. Maybe it turns body IS off. I used it Sunday. You can see the results.

Another thing I like about this lens is it has a lens lock switch. This is great when you carry it nose down. No lens creep.

The zoom is much easier and smoother than the Panasonic 100-400 somebody had at the lake Sunday. He doesn't like the tight zoom ring on the Panny. Its probably to prevent lens creep.
