    I understand this is a subjective evaluation, but what can I expect out of the G85 when using telephotos without lens based stabilization.

    With my Nikons (DX crop sensor) I can get good results hand held at 200mm (300mm FF equiv) down to about 1/50th wit VR equipped glass, which is about 2-3 stops. Can I expect the same results with a non-stabilized 150mm on my G85?

    I can get sharp shots at 1/5 no problem with the Olympus M.Zuiko 40-150mm F4-5.6 R @150mm, I can do 1 second, but obviously the keeper rate is lower. It is possible though.

    Depends on your technique and steadiness. But 1/10 is a cinch and should guarantee sharp images unless you are shaking a lot

    Same results? The short answer is no. Because you can get even better results.

    Depends on your technique.
    And IBIS seems to work far better on short focal lengths. I cant tell the difference with my G85 & 14-140 with the lens stabilization off or on, but I am not good at holding my camera still these days.
