Panasonic is pleased to announce a firmware upgrade for five of its LUMIX G lenses to make them compatible with the new Dual I.S technology introduced in the DMC-GX8.

The firmware upgrade is available for the following lenses:

  • H-ES045 Ver.1.0→Ver.1.1
  • H-FS45150 Ver.1.1→Ver.1.2
  • H-FS12032 Ver.1.0→Ver.1.1
  • H-FS35100 Ver.1.0→Ver.1.1
  • H-HS043 Ver.1.0→Ver.1.1

Panasonic’s DMC-GX8's Dual I.S (Image Stabiliser) system combines the Body I.S and Lens I.S working at the same time to take maximum advantage of both stabilizers together. Achieving a more powerful handshake correction, Dual I.S provides consistently blur-free images, from wide-angle right through to telephoto shooting, even in low-lit situations.

There are now eleven Dual I.S compatible lenses, providing photographers with more choice and more shooting situations that can benefit from consistently blur-free images.
