Image Stabilization doesn't work with third party lenses  

New Member

The Image Stabilization (IS) recently stopped working on my OM-D EM 5 MkII. Whenever I mount one of my Samyangs (7.5mm fisheye & 12mm) and IS is activated, the display moves all over the place as if the IS is making the sensor jump around. It's doing the exact opposite of what the IS is supposed to do. The lenses work fine with IS turned off. This problem doesn't coincide with a firmware upgrade.
Has anyone else run into this problem?

Hmm. This doesn't sound familiar to me, but we also don't get many Olympus shooters in here. It's not uncommon for built-in stabilization to have problems with 3rd party lenses, but that should be less of an issue with MFT... it IS a problem with my Sony A7RIII.

Anyway, I hope that someone can chime in with some help, but I'm afraid that this is probably one of those times when it will make sense to take the camera to your nearest repair shot/service center.

Good luck!
