Do you shoot in this mode just with the 300? Or when do you usually enable/disable it?

I use my E-M5 with that enabled all the time. It's just a more impressive setting with the longer focal lengths because it's so much harder holding a camera steady at 200-300mm than it is something like a 25mm prime lens. You still see it at work, but the views through the longer lenses are really impressively steady.

If you ever were to want to manually focus, half-press the shutter release to enable IS and hold the release half-way down, then as you start to focus and the finder jumps into the manual focus assist enlargement the finder continues to stay perfectly still. It's better than focus peaking in my opinion.

....I found another setting that was defaulted to show 'stabil' only when camera moved. I changed it to 'stabil at all times' with the setting to 1/2 and now the long focal length like the 200-300 do the wiggle.

Plus I was using the short focal lenses early on and did not see it in the EVF, I like how it works now, it really snaps still.

No E-M1, but I'm headed over to AC this evening to compare my Panasonic 12-35 to the Olympus 12-40.
