Richard Wong:i’ve received the new v1.0 firmware from Panasonic and also  updated lens firmware which means the dual I.S. 2 is finally enabled. so i’ve done some testing of the Dual I.S. 2 system and updated my review.
In short, the Dual I.S. 2 works exactly as advertised, 5 stops of stabilisation at 280mm (35mm equivalent)
