I'm a new Micro Four Thirds camera owner, having just purchased an E-P3 kit and a 17mm lens. I like the camera a lot. The kit lens is sharp and incredibly fast focusing, while the 17mm is compact and produces lovely results despite not being the sharpest lens on the block (which I knew going in). The main reason I bought the E-P3 is because I really like Olympus JPEGs and while I've shot mainly RAW in the past I just don't have time to process my photos to get them to look the way I want. I find that OOC results from the E-P3 are pretty close to how I would process them anyhow, which is great. I was tempted to wait for the new OM-D, but this is my "snapshot" camera and I really wanted something pretty compact. The OM-D seems to be significantly larger, but maybe in practice there's not such a big difference. Which leads me to... IBIS. The new system on the OM-D is reputed to be excellent, but I'm finding IBIS on my E-P3 to do more harm than good. At shutter speeds around 1/80 and above, I often see very slight double-images in my photos. I did some handheld test shots with IBIS enabled and disabled, and the sharpest shots were with IBIS disabled. I got inconsistent results with IBIS, some shots were quite sharp, and some were really quite soft. I also rested the camera on a table with IBIS disabled and (not surprisingly) got the sharpest shots of all, confirming that the kit lens is not the issue. There's no substitue for simply holding the camera steady or using a tripod I had read that the E-P3 IBIS system was perhaps more robust than the E-PM1 (which I briefly tried and was disappointed with) but this doesn't seem to be the case. I'm worried that I won't be able to get blur-free handheld shots with the E-P3 when I buy the 40-150mm lens which I'd like to use for nature photography. I still have time to return the camera. Nearly all of my photos are hand-held, I often don't carry a tripod, and I plan on dong a fair bit of telephoto photography. I'm pretty sensitive to soft images, perhaps more than I should be but I'm used to getting tack-sharp photos from my Nikon V1 at full telephoto zoom at just about any shutter speed over 1/30. I prefer the E-P3 in every other way though. Any IBIS tips to improve my photos, or should I consider a different camera for what I want to do? And let me conclude by saying that I'm really enjoying these forums. It seems like a great community focused more on photography and less on gear and pixel-peeping, which is something I'm striving to do myself!
