    I found a thread on DPR (not as nausiating as per usual, I was surprised :wink:), where a user had glued a Dandelion chip on a legacy adapter, did the programming- and got Video IBIS on his Tokina AT-X macro 90/2.5 w/MD-M43 adapter. But he also noted:

    "it does not work when video quality is set to Full HD fine, the camera hangs up after 10 s. When set to Full HD normal it works fine."

    Although- if the Dandelion chip can get IBIS to work with video on legacy lenses (kind of), maybe there's a firmware update way of getting to work as well?

    I have a quick question regarding this that's not related to the OM-D.

    Would this work for focus confirmation on an PL1 using legacy glass?
