    Just curious as to whether other users here are using their tripod less and less after getting their E-M5. I find that the IBIS is so good that I rarely use my tripod anymore. (I shoot mostly landscapes...)

    Anyone experience the same thing?

    I use a tripod for more than just to avoid shake induced image softness. I like being able to simply focus on just the composition of my image, lock down the tripod, and then worry about the technical parameters separately.

    I haven't used my E-M5 on a tripod more than once or twice since I got it in January. Yes the IBIS is really good.

    I shoot at night, where fast primes and ibis can't keep up with the low ISO I prefer, so no

    Yes, using a tripod for the EM5. It helps with long exposures and the panni 100-300.
