new OM1, viewfinder awfully shivering and hazy

6 hours ago I got my OM1, waited half a year for it.

Battery just loaded fully, looking through the viewfinder is awful, when I just move the camera vertically or horizontally the image in the viewfinder shivers awfully and is hazy, enormous lag.

I took my OM1 mk3, far, far,far,far less shivering. Frame speed on both cameras set to normal.

when I set the frame speed on my OM1mk3 to “high” the image in the viewfinder is smooth when I move the camera, on the OM1 it keeps on shivering, a bit less.

I really cannot imagine that you can follow a bird in flight or a car , while panning.

On both cameras the IBIS is set to S-IS auto. Changing the IBIS settings did not help.

Defective camera on arrival? I did a total reset, did not help. Nice to have camera with OLED viewfinder, but I cannot work with this. I did not take any picture, but when this cannot be solved I return the camera just one day after I received it.

I cannot imagine that this is normal, I am frustrated.

NB the same findings on the rear screen.

Do you recognise this?
