    Question for E-M5 and Zuiko FT Fisheye owners

    I still hesitate to call this a bug but could those of you who have an E-M5 and the Zuiko FT Fisheye please take some pictures with IS Off and IS1 and tell me if they also notice a left shift of the resulting image and blurry images?
    Reason is that the only way to get decently focused pics showing exactly what i framed is with IS Off.

    IS on the E-M5 works perfectly well with all my other Ft lenses, including the FT 7-14 and my FT Fish works perfectly well with IS when mounted on my E-P3.
    I'm using the MMF1.

    Currently i know of 1 other E-M5 owner having the same problem with this combination and the MMF3.
    See here: http://forums.dpreview.com/forums/re...ssage=41228189

    If someone can confirm that this combination works for him wirh IS On, it must be related to our individual cam + adapter + lens combo.
    If others also have this problem, we can direct the Oly support to this thread.

    The FT fish is very well usable with IS Off and it is no big deal but if the new IBIS has a problem with the Ft Fish, Olympus should tell us to avoid people crying fatal flaw

    thx -Sabine

    BTW: i just called the German Oly tech support. They do not have an E-M5 to try for themselves

    Thanks for this first hand information
    Any such problems with the 12-60 at the wide end too?

    No, according to Oly Japan TS this happens only with the three lenses mentioned above.

    I tried the 12-60, the 14-35 and the 7-14 at the wide, middle and long ends, they are all OK.

    Well, I strongly prefer first hand experience over any official announcement.
    So, thanks a lot for sharing your findings !

    Would love to see you to set up an OM-D_5 teaser gallery - any chance ?

    At least Olympus seem to have acted quickly on this.

    Did you have a chance to already test the FW update with your fisheye ?
    Are you satisfied with the results now or did they just disable IBIS with those ?
