Default Olympus image stabilization - OMG

I shot this with the E-M1 MkII and the splendid new 12-100mm. Both body and lens have image stab, and they talk to each other somehow. The exposure time was 1/8 sec, hand-held. And I'm not as steady as I used to be.



Cool, huh?

Impressive. Verrrry much so.

I'm estimating by the partially recognizable
background detail focus that you're nowhere
near the 100mm limit. But, just tell me I'm
wrong and acoarst I'll take you at your word
and then be even MORE verrrrry impressed !

Golem - well observed. It was closer to the other end of the range at 18mm. But still.

Here's another example, this one at 1/6 sec and 28mm focal length. ISO was 6400, so it's a bit noisy. Can't have everything.

I heard recently that tripod manufacturers are experiencing a dip in sales because of cameras like this.

Still impressed with the 12-100mm? Tried it on your E-M5 mkII or just leave it bolted to the E-M1 mkII? Wonder if it feels to front heavy on the 5.....?

Great looking images, Dave, that stabilization system worked well.

Mr. P - I'm still diggin' it, but it is, um, large. Haven't tried it with the 5 yet but I imagine the weight would be even more noticeable there, especially given the lack of grip.

The sharpness and acuity look really good and I like the constant aperture, too. Nice hunk of glass all 'round.
