This was my first outing with the original EM1 [back in 2013 now!]

Whilst it's fairly high ISO for MfT the noise isn't bad and the uncanny IBIS got a steady shot [with ethereal moving figure, which I like] which would have been difficult or impossible with any other system sans tripod. I've straightened the verticals on this a bit, but otherwise it's untouched.

The day after I shot this in rain-swept Bruges we did a brewery tour and had the most granite-faced of the guides [in English]. She turned out to be hilariously dry-witted. It wasn't until I got home and looked more closely at this shot I realised she'd been drinking in the same pub as us.

That Oly IBIS is amazing, better than Sony's, not sure if it's easier to stabilise or harder when format size increases

I think it’s harder Chris because there’s necessarily more movement. As you’re effectively magnifying the image (projected over 2x on the diagonal) my guess is it’s akin to doubling the focal length. It’s why longer lenses aren’t as effectively stabilised by ibis because the magnified movement is too large for the sensor to deal with - which is why in those cases you tend to have OIS too. At shorter focal length the stabilisation on the G9 even outclasses the EM1 - it seems almost black magic.
