    I wandered past Somerset House (in London) earlier in the week, curious to see the Cartier-Bresson exhibition there, but ended up wandering around the building and the courtyard ice rink instead.

    Cheers! I can't believe how good the ISO 3200 shots are on the GH3. Also, noting the shutter speed was 1/10, it's clear to me the OIS in the 12-35 is at least the equal of the 5-axis (not angle, as I managed to type somewhere to my shame yesterday) IBIS of the E-M5.

    I didn't know about that exhibition - I often walk past Somerset House on the way home from work. When is that on until?

    I think its on until the third week in January (called "A question of colour"). It's slightly misleading in that there are 10 previously unexhibited works by Cartier Bresson and 75 "related" works by other photographers. Nonetheless, I intend to go back for a proper look.

    Very good results with the OIS, it seems a great match for the camera.

    Couldn't agree more - it's rare at the minute that I actually put anything other than the 12-35, 35-100 or 7-14 on the GH3. While clearly there isn't OIS on the 7-14, the OIS on the 12-35 and 35-100 seems a step up from that on the first generation of Panny OIS lenses.
