One of the nicest surprises I had from moving to mirrorless!

I always thought this lens was a dog. Even on two tripods (second strapped to 
the front section of the lens), with weights hanging form each, I could not get 
a sharp image out of that lens on an E-3. Adapted to a DSLR, there was to 
aperture crash, just the mirror flapping, but that particular lens rang like a 
bell, with the linear blur characteristic of vibration.

Then I put it on one tripod, no added weight, 12-second self-timer, on the OM-D 
E-M1 Mark II - and got painfully sharp images!

It's amazing what a 40-year-old can do, if you give him a new body... I could 
use one of those... :-)
