The new G80 firmware doesn’t seem to fix the IS issue on all lenses

The new G80 1.1 firmware update only patially fixed the IS issue. CameraJabber reports:

The firmware update was to correct the visible recoil or bounce-back effect that happens in video mode when panning the camera. I’ve now shot more video with the camera and there is an improvement with the updated 12-60mm kit lens and at common video panning speeds many would struggle to spot it. However, as you can see from the video above, the problem persists with the Panasonic Leica DG Vario-Elmar 100-400mm f/4-6.3 lens. The narrow angle of view of this lens makes any movement much more obvious.

It’s a day since the postman delivered this lens, and so far I am very happy with it. The extra reach, the ability to get close to your subject, the confidence you can have in the IS; all provide expanded opportunities for shooting. It’s going to be an excellent walk-around companion for the next few years.
