  • The same optic as the original 12-35mm f2.8. Is it honestly true that the old version cannot be firmware upgraded to have all the capability of the new version? Or Panasonic just want to refresh their 12-35mm f2.8 so they can sell it at the price they want?

  • have not seen any demos to see is the ois alone has improved for say the gh4 or bmp/mcc cameras, that would be the only reason for me to uprade, even if i bought a gh5.
