The new DC-GH5 firmware Ver 1.1 is  released on April 24, 2017 at the following LUMIX Customer Support website: http://panasonic.jp/support/global/cs/dsc/

LUMIX G X VARIO PZ 45-175mm / F4.0-5.6 ASPH. / POWER O.I.S. (H-PS45175)

Firmware Update Service Ver.1.3 to Enable Dual I.S.

 Panasonic is also announcing the new firmware update program Ver.1.3 for LUMIX G digital interchangeable lens - LUMIX G X VARIO PZ 45-175mm / F4.0-5.6 ASPH. / POWER O.I.S. (H-PS45175) - making it compatible with the Dual I.S. (Image Stabilizer) function. Dual I.S. is available when the lens is used with the LUMIX GH5, GX8, GX80/GX81/GX85 and G80/G81/G85 DSLM (Digital Single Lens Mirrorless) cameras. Combining an O.I.S.(Optical Image Stabilizer) and B.I.S.(Body Image Stabilizer), it compensates for larger movements which were conventionally uncontrollable and boasts even more powerful and effective blurring suppression from wide-angle to telephoto.

With this firmware update, a total of 19 LEICA DG/ LUMIX G digital interchangeable lenses are now compatible with Dual I.S.
