Does the Image Stabilizer function in the E-3 work with Olympus OM- Series lenses?

0

The Image Stabilizer function in the E-3 can be applied to OM- Series manual lenses after the E-3 DSLR body firmware has been updated. The latest firmware release provides the option to set the focal length of the lens being used. The Image Stabilizer function must know the focal length of the attached lens in order to apply the correct compensation to the sensor when the camera senses camera shake. Zuiko Digital lenses, being “smart” lenses, automatically provide this information from the firmware in the lens to the firmware in the camera body. Manual lenses contain no electronics, so focal length information must be entered manually by the photographer. Updating the firmware adds an option in the IMAGE STABILIZER menu to set the focal length of the OM- Series lens being used. The MF-1 OM Lens Adapter is required to attach an OM- Series lens to the Four Thirds mount on the E-3. To purchase the MF-1 OM Lens Adapter (Item #260231) from The Olympus Store, click here.
