Disabling stabilisation off switch

Hi. Not sure whether anyone can advise.

I gave an E-M1 ii with the 12-100 usually attached. Occasionally after taking a photo which looks a bit fuzzy feeling I've found that the switch on the lens has been moved and I've been shooting without stabilisation for quite some time. Is there a way to tell the camera to ignite the switch and leave dual stabilisation on unless explicitly switched off using e.g. the SCP? I ploughed through all the menus without finding such an option, but maybe be I missed or misunderstood something ....

Hi,

I believe turning the switch off effectively overrides any other settings, turning IS off.

Cheers

Maybe superglue is the only answer. Seems a bit crude …

Sometimes I think the switch gets moved when getting the camera out of the bag. As does the focus clutch ring, but that's more immediately noticeable.

My sympathy - I find the same with the switches on my PanLeica 100-400. I aim to check all three switches (Stab/AF/FocusLimit) because they seem to get moved all too easily. Of course, I forget when it really matters

Re: Disabling stabilisation off switch

I have the same problem, but with my Pen F! I have to check the exposure compensation wheel and front dial each time I pull it out of my bag to make sure they haven't got shifted from their desired position.

I haven;t had the same problem with my 12-100 lens, but wonder if slipping a rubber band around the lens would help?

On the other hand, I never use the locking button on the mode switch of my E-M1-ii. Never feel a need for it
