    Hi all.
    I have a IBIS question for you. On the IBIS settings it mentions focal length, do I have to change this every time I swap lenses or is there a auto setting. If I do have to change it,do I take the crop factor into account (set 40 when using the 20mm)
    Thanks
    Matt

    I believe you only need to set the actual focal length when using a manual lens. Any true m43 lens should report its focal length to the body through the electrical contacts.

    As for what value to set it to, I had always assumed it was the actual FL of the lens, not the equivalent 35mm focal length.
