    I have a GF-1 and love it. But it has no stabilization. If I get the Oly 25/1,8 will there be a problem with shake? I never use a tripod, am very steady. Any help?

    It will be fine. Stabilization is nice to have, but the vast majority of normal prime lens users go without it on nearly all brands of cameras.

    As long as you stick to shutter speeds of 1/50th or faster you should be good. Me, I'll be shooting at 1/2 on my EM1 :biggrin:

    Not even Panasonic's 25mm prime has stabilization.

    Typically if shooting people, you'll need to be using higher than 1/50th anyway. So stablization wouldn't really help. Your shutter speed will be high enough to prevent hand shake blur.
