    I have Olympus EP3 and ordered the new Panasonic 45-175 X with OIS. I have heard that I may have double IS since Oly has IBIS and the Panny has no off/on switch for OIS and it's on automatically on the 45-175 .... or.. does Oly not recognize the OIS on the 45-175 Panny? :smile:

    Just turn off IBIS on the E-P3, not a problem, check your owners manual.

    Patience, Mr. Doug! You are asking a question on a brand new piece of equipment which most of us has not even seen in person! :wink:

    According to one of the other review threads on this site for that lens, the Mega OIS will automatically turn off on Pen cameras, presumably to avoid a conflict with the IBIS, even where the IBIS has been turned off.

    MrDoug: Do you always place an order first and then ask questions later? Is this sort of like buyer's remorse? :rofl:

    Be sure to let us know the conclusion on the IS when you do get it :)

    Patience..? what is that? just kidding.. yes, well I have heard that the Oly will not recognize the OIS tab/switch on Panny 45-175 lens mount, so it will be like a non OIS lens.. like the 20/1.7 etc.. but not sure! I am never sure of anything.. :smile:
