:D Hi Gordon and Armanius, Thank you for your good replies,

I understand you explained.

Do Olympus E-3 and E-30's Image stabilization with 5 stops were better than Olympus E-620, E-520 and other E-numbers ??

I will might to buy Olympus E-620 on next fall or Olympus E-3 was worth right.

I found Olympus E-620's good information news in http://www.dphotojournal.com/
Click here : Olympus E-620 wins Best Digital SRL Entry Level XIX TIPA Awards 2009


:cry: Olympus E-3 did not win an Award.



The E3 is not a 2009 camera, and last year it was up against rivals like the D300 which destroyed the E3 in specifications.

I found it only personally gave me 2-2.5 stops of compensation, whereas the Canon and Nikon kit lenses with stabilisation consistently gave me 3 to 4 stops. This was the same experience I had with the E-520.


Hmm I seem to recall that you did a side by side comparison of in body IS vs lens IS with the 510 and a Leica lens and you came to the conclusion that the in body was slightly more effective than lens IS. Does this mean that the pana/leica IS was just not as effective as canon and nikon IS?

What about the E-3? Did you personally get 5 stops as Oly claims?


Ill test this tomorrow and let you know, and then compare it to my 510 which I still have.



edit: Looks like I'm moving in on your job Gordon :lol:

I wonder if the effectiveness of the IS in Oly cameras differs depending on the lens used ...

The only difference could be focal lengths. I guess if a lens improperly delivers the focal length information to the camera, the IS would be off... I don't know if that could even be a problem though, or how often that happens, or how much such a small difference in compensation can make in the image.
