I sure would like a better explanation on what was changed, because I can't tell a difference in the OIS, but it feels like the lens misses focus more often now (GH2)

Tried to follow this link; there doesn't seem to be an update to the 12-35 zoom available. Anybody tried this?

Boy, I am really getting behind on these updates, but I guess this is good news.

interesting... I found the IBIS on the OM-D EM-5 worked better w/ video prior to this update,

OIS turned on or off? Not best to use both IBIS and OIS the same time

I don't know how they talk and negotiate but I hope the lens and camera could decide themselves, to turn on which or both in a cooperation mode to get the best result.

I don't think there's any sophisticated negotiation, and certainly no combination mode of operation. If you turn power OIS on, I believe Olympus uses that instead of IBIS. Turn OIS off if you want IBIS stabilization.
