    Hi Everyone. Iv been using my epl1 with evf2 for awhile now and it seems great but iv got a question about the IS and how it works.

    With the different modes for IS (1,2,3) There is focal length that needs to be adjusted. Iv never touched this and I am wondering if it needs to be changed to depending on the zoom of the lens or lens size. How would i go about knowing which mm to put the focal length on?

    Also does anyone have a problem with the epl1 not taking really sharp photos? Iv noticed every now and again.

    Any advise with be appreciated Thanks

    The FL setting only needs to be used if you are using a non-native lens. All m4/3 lenses communicate with the camera and "tell" the camera the current FL so setting it isn't necessary.

    As for unsharp photos, this can be caused by many factors such as slow shutter speed, large aperture, missed focus, etc. More information such as example pictures with EXIF information included would be most helpful.
