    I recently took my fathers Panasonic superzoom bridge camera out for an afternoon. Within 45 minutes i was feeling decidedly ill. :alcoholic:

    I remembered i used to feel the same when using my Canon 70-200 is.
    The only thing i could put it down to is a kind of motion sickness because of the swimming effect when using long lenses with is.

    Has anyone else had/suffered this kind of problem ? Or is it just me being over sensitive to wavy wobbles !

    I was considering buying a long zoom but this last nausea episode has put me off a little.:frown::frown:

    I get it a bit with IS - videos shot on the OM-D em-5 make me somewhat queazy because of the liberal use of that 5-axis stabilisation.

    Ripley, you can shut IS off. That shouldn't stop you from buying a longer lens.
