    Do you think there will be any compatibility issues with the new Panasonic lens that's rumored? Would the IBIS continue to work fine on my E-M5? If the new lens that's coming works well with the E-M5, it might have to be on my wish list. What I'm lacking right now is a really nice fast zoom and this looks like it may be what I need....unless Olympus comes out with one soon.

    Shouldn't be any problems. IBIS has worked on all lenses so far, and the main quirk that Panasonic lenses have on Olympus bodies (rapid opening and closing of aperture blades, causing a 'chattering' noise) has only been with lenses f/2.0 or faster.
