No matter what they put inside it, once it doesn't have IBIS, it just won't make no sense when compared to Oly body.

I don't believe Panasonic will ever build a camera with IBIS. They've standardized on having IS on the lens instead of on the body and I think they'll keep it that way. Just like Nikon and Canon never released a DSLR with IBIS. They make much more money by charging for it through the lens.

Thankfully, Olympus are right there with an alternative solution... and if Panasonic see users choosing their bodies with IBIS a major deciding factor, then they will have to step up their game.

Never say never. Wasn't there a rumour recently that Panasonic were looking at IBIS for a future model?
