Back in the old B+W days we used to say 50% of photography takes place in the darkroom. Ansel Adams would sometimes spend as much as a month trying to get the "perfect" print.* Same is true today...

You can see the patterns in the feathers of the right wing, like on these tail feathers: (these are not moiré patterns, they are really there)

For sure! One thing to note though is that when panning, the IS can also be tricked by the background, that is, it can stabilize the background to make it easier for the AF to be tricked by it. I...

That depends a lot on what lens you have on it. As an example, S-AF on my mFT 75-300 II (only mFT lens I own) is lightning fast and C-AF is quite good at all focal lengths. My FT 50-200 is still OK,...

Also, it is in fact better to turn IS of all together if there is enough light to freeze the action. It does make a difference in clarity. IS is a trade off, great when you need it, but a hindrance...

Seems to be the case, but the Oly IS is SO good anyway, and supposedly improved in the Mark II by 1.5 stops, so who really needs the combination? With the E-M1 I can quite easily hold 1/30 with a...
