    Just took delivery of the new Olympus 12-100, and thought I'd see how good it was mounted on a Panasonic camera (so just using the lens IS only). The answer - very good.

    Following image shot at 100mm (200mm Eff) @ ½ Second handheld with my GX8. Tried it several times and all came out sharp. Not too shabby ?

    Nothing exciting in the photo, just some switches that I was testing it with on my work desk.

    Actually not bad. Better with the grip attached, but even without not too bad at all. Also really like it on my GX8

    For anyone using this lens on E-M1 ii, do you set lens priority IS setting on or off?

    Hi, Off is the usual setting.
    If you have the E-M1 II, you could have dual IS enabled, which is probably set somewhere else.
