no only body is on 2 and 4.

Yes, I had noise on high. I think I should have had it on standard instead for daylight shooting. Still getting to know the ins and out of this camera.

But 7's seem to be the sweet spot on this lens

I think the reason for the huge difference in 2 and 4 is the composing with the lcd, and I am shaking vertical more. And horizontal and 2 axis inbody IS is not countering the added shake form lcd uses. I am really looking forward to getting my silver evf, think that it will help the IS be more effective in 2 axis.

I will see how the weather is tomorrow, will try it out at no, low and std NR.

I'd set it to LOW. On previous Oly cameras I had, I had set it to OFF because the NF was quite intrusive. On the EP1, the NF is not as aggressive so LOW is fine up to ISO 1600. I image the EPL1 would behave very similarly.

Ok, I slow down the shutter speed for these, to 1/160 sec, 200iso, f13, NR off, think you can see the effect of the different IS a bit better.


again
1 lens IS only
2 Body IS 2 axis
3 Body IS vertical
4 Body IS horizontal

I see lots of differences between the various settings. It is obvious that NR standard is very strong and the images lack a lot of definitions. The trees are smudged and the windows on the back building are also undefined. Contrast is very poor on the 4th set probably due to diffraction at f13 (unless the fog was in). To me, the 3rd set was the best (NR set to OFF), both in terms of detail and contrast. NR std is certainly too aggressive for my taste and I'd only consider using it when shooting at ISO above 1600.
