Any m4/3 lens which does not communicate with the body is not native

AFAIK, IBIS works for all NATIVE m43 lenses. Only NATIVE m43 lenses can be 'mounted on the body', whereas all legacy lenses must be mounted via adapter.

Nope. The Voigtlander lenses are native, and can't be stabilised on the camera. They also say in the quotes I posted that IBIS works with all lenses. "ALL" doesn't exclude anything.

I would argue that any lens which does not communicate with the body is not native because the full m4/3 specification is not implemented. Voigtlander lenses just have the convenience of an m4/3 adapter built in.

It's not how many pixels you have... but how you use them.
