    Really enjoying these videos - they're awesome.

    A quick question on this particular video - On the Image Stabilisation option you skipped past the Focal Length setting.

    * If I use a digital lens is this always automatically set (ie the setting is pulled from the lens itself) ?
    * If I use a manually adapted lens do I need to set this to match the lens and if I don't what affect does it have on the image itself ?

    Cheers,
    Raj.

    Thanks Raj,

    yes, the body will auto detect the focal length of any m4/3rds or 4/3rds standard lens.

    If you don't set the focal length somewhere near for stabilising legacy lenses, you will get degraded IBIS performance.

    Cheers
