Curious80, posting an example for you where I see if very clearly, of course, in web-size and even in some prints I suspect it won't be visible but I for one like my shots sharp. The times they aren't sharp I like to know and understand it is my own fault and my own doing.
It may seem strange to bring this up after having had the camera for well over a year but I've suspected it for quite some time but never asked about it until I took this picture where it became all too apparent. When I shot the model photos where so many came out unsharp I wrote it off as a few different things, one, focusing issues, maybe the camera didn't focus on the model but rather the background (only using focus points that I choose my self btw so it SHOULD be spot on but as the focus points are quite big normally you never know). I also wrote it off as an IBIS problem, maybe I was hand holding it in a way where I actually made a mess of the IBIS rather then it helping me.
This picture though everything should have been fine, Olympus 45mm F1.8 stopped down to F2.5, good handholding technique, IBIS on, took the photo at the same time as the camera found focus (which means I didn't move forward/backward between locking focus and exposing).
Posting a small JPEG and a 100% crop and a screenshot from Aperture showing the focus point.
Like I said, probably uninteresting for most but for those thinking about the camera like you are Curious it might be helpful. It is by no means a bad camera, it is great but seeing this so often is kind of putting me off and had I made the camera choice today, after so many soft photos, I would probably think twice about it and maybe look at the GX7 (anybody know if it suffers from the same problem?).
