Default Sync IS- It's a Beautiful Thing....

Venus over White Rock Lake this morning, with the original E-M1 and 12-100mm f4 M. Zuiko. ISO 200 and one-third of a second, hand-held at 24mm..



From there, a sunrise series with the same set up..

The E-M1 is still pretty darn compelling as a body to use the 12-100mm f4. The main issue is the pull on the battery by the dual IS system. One definitely needs to go out for a day's shoot with at least three batteries for safety's sake, but I think the profiles for the camera/lens combination in DXO may be better for the E-M1 and 12-100 vs. the E-M1 Mark II and 12-100. At least, I'm certainly having better results with the E-M1 files in DXO than with the E-M1 Mark II raw files.





12mm..



and from the same spot as the above shot, but zoomed to 100mm, an excellent range to have in one lens..

G'day mate

A beaut collection of images that show more than 'just' a new lens / camera combo

You comment also about the lens's versatiliity of 'excellent range in one lens' and that is shown here also. Well done

If Olympus ever decided to release an updated version of the 40-150mm f2.8 Pro, I could easily see that lens including IS to dual sync with the body IS system

Agreed

What the lens designers can do these days is amazing - esp when compared with film camera lenses of 20 - 40 yrs ago
