    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.

    Real Name:
    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.
