E-M5-II and E-M10-11 users..notice better images with newer IBIS?

  1. I'm starting to look at the market for a second body and the M10 II is definitely a consideration. With the number of legacy lenses I love and use, I'm curious to see if the 5 axis IBIS is helping the adapted lens folks to any noticeable degree.

    10ii, isn't much better than the 3-axis Version of the original EM10.

    With em5ii, i've photographed landscapes below 1/10s. For some less critical work i got quite a few shots up to 1s - but i have quite a steady Hand.

    For adapted lenses both are a no brainer, both will get you 1/30 - 1/15s, which is still better than most other systems.

  3. The difference between 3-axis and 5-axis is minimal. What will help you is the much improved EVF on the E-M5 II. The EVF on the E-M10 II is better than the E-M10, but the E-M5 II is much better. You'll get a much bigger and clearer image to work with and this will improve focussing when doing it by eye, instead of using peaking.
