If you are using M 4/3 lenses the focal length will be set automaticaly as for IS ?

Not sure if you have seen my tweet but on page 49 of the manual it states the following.
Choosing a focal length (Micro Four Thirds/Four Thirds System lenses excluded) Use focal length information to reduce camera shake when shooting with lenses that are not Micro Four Thirds or Four Thirds system lenses.

I was being lazy not took the cd out yet to look at the Manual but now you provided a link to it I have downloaded it and putting it on the ipad to read while in bed

Going to have a good read and get use to this lovely camera

Reading the manual in bed is probably the best place as you may find it rather soporific. The manual is packed with useful information but seems to be designed as a work of reference. Indeed I found that I could not make much sense of it until I had played with the camera for a while then things began to fall into place. Now I find it a useful resource but I have not attempted to read it from cover to cover.

Ditto. I just leave it on 1 and never think about it. I never got on with the IS in the E-3 and E-5 but in the OM-D it just seems to work for my hands.
