Dual IS is not working with all lenses

I just bought a GX8 and found out that I had to update the firmware of my lenses liked the 12-35 f2.8 and the 35-100 f2.8. Besides the laborious procedure it has to bedone (Downloaden, unzipping,filing on PC, copying to formatted SD,inserting in the camera and waiting and start again: why not via the USB cable?), it's not working for the long tele zoom lenses  like the FS100-300! That's a pity because with 300 mm 5,6 you can use every bit of improvement of stabilization. Especially went have to shoot out of hand.

Why not? Probably because Panasonic is far behind with her updates. The last update of this lens  was in 1012!  No Dual IS in that time yet.

So in the maenwhile shooting without tripod  better buy your self one of those Panasonic bridge camera' s with there extremely good stabilization. May be the reason why Panasonic Is lacking behind with the update of its long focus system lenses??
