For Olympus to equip the 100-400mm zoom with OIS, but not make that OIS compatible with the IBIS, sounds like quite a gaffe. The mechanical hardware is already there; the rest is just electronics and software, a problem that had already been solved for two other lenses.

The new 100-400mm lenses are pre productions models & meanwhile Olympus have released new firmware updates, e.g. :

The previews from these pre production models look good, despite lacking the latest firmware.
