    Dear all,

    I recently bought a Panasonic/Leica Four-thirds 14-150mm zoom lens. This lens has got image stabilisation of VR or OS if you like, built-in.

    What I want to know is; should I turn off the IS on the lens or on the camera (Olympus E-30 or E-620), or maybe leave both on ??

    So you have two VR systems at once? I would suggest turn off the one in camera. The lens specific one is more likely to give higher performance if the discussions around the net are two be believed. But it would probably relate specifically to how good the camera or the lens is.

    I'm not sure on the specifics of your lens, but for instance the Nikkor 18-200mm despite all it's short comings has an excellent VR which could approach 4 stops vibration reduction. I haven't seen that level of performance from a sensor based solution yet.
