I tried a chipped adapter (I think it is the dandelion chip) with an OM 50mm f1.4 lens and the IBIS went nuts, going extremely shakey and making sufficient noises that I stopped it immediately.

Probably best to wait until someone confirms compatibility before ordering up big.

[Edit] I have tried several OM lenses at 50mm and 135 mm, and configured the focal length on the camera at the correct value (and various other values) and it still does it.
