G9 + 14-140mm + IBIS Performance


I purchased a new G9 recently and was using the Olympus 14-150mm until I replaced it with a new 14-140mm and 25mm to get the best out of the camera for focusing and IS.

However, I find the IS not as solid as with the Oly and Panny 25mm 1.7 G lens.

With the other 2 lenses, IS seems to lock in nicely and the focus box doesn't move much at all before I press the shutter. With the 14-140mm however, I get a jittery movement which forces me to concentrate on holding the camera more firmly. I'm surprised with this and, yes, the OIS on the lens is turned on and it shows up on the monitor as Dual IS 2. This doesn't inspire much confidence with this combo with regards to IS. Focusing is superb however.

Has anyone noticed this behaviour?
