    i had the 45-200 paired with the em10. The lens IS was turned off. Every time I focused, the image would jump/shake for about 2 seconds or so. If I turned the lens IS on, it wasn't a problem. Has anyone else experienced this? Is this normal?

    My 45-200 is at the office, but I'll try it out when I get it.

    Just tried it on mine with all combinations of IS priority and IBIS / OIS. All I get is a very brief (split second) blurring as the IS and focus motors activate in either mode. At 200mm with IS off, it's a little shakey though. Could it be that you are inducing camera shake as you focus?

    It's definitely not camera shake. you could feel the sensor shaking inside. And, as I said, it wasn't a problem with the lens IS turned on. So far, it's just an issue with the p45-200 lens and only when the mega-ois is off.

    I had same issues with 40-150 lens when forgot IBIS on manual focal length (8mm) - so, check yours.

    I've tried to replicate this problem with my kit, mainly out of curiosity, but I cannot. As far as I can see, the IBIS focal length sets automatically when using a native lens and the manual selection has no effect. I can't see a manual vs automatic option either, just the option of setting a focal length.

    There are so many settings on this camera and it's possible that there is a combination that I haven't stumbled upon, but as far as I can see, my kit doesn't seem to have this issue.

    It's not a huge issue - using the lens OIS seems to be a workaround. I may replace this lens with the O45-150 one day and eliminate any cross-brand communication issues.
