I am considering a purchase of P 42.5 1.7 or PL 42.5 1.2 Nocticron.  Do you know whether these lenses will be compatible Dual IS 2 on GH5 or there will be a mark ii version? Thank you.

The f1.2 will have a firmware update late in 2017 to make it Dual IS 2  compatible.

I don't understand the point in implementing an HDR mode if it doesn't capture any more than the 12 stops achievable with conventional means. 

It's not about expanding the camera's DR, it's about delivering more of that DR to the viewer's screen.

To display not REC.709 with a maximum 6 Stops but all 12 stops this camera is capable of on the HDR TV-Set without a super compressed gamma curve?

 

BTW, the human eye can aparently only see a range of 14 stops in a single image.

That's my understanding as well. Anyhow, I've been shooting Dual IS Mk 1 with the Nocticron and G85, and some think I used a tripod, so I wouldn't sweat it.

 

I don't think the GH5 will be capable of Dial IS MK 1. Only MK 2.

So you get just plain IBIS or plain Power OIS with the current 12-35 lens even with the Dual IS MK 1 firmware update.

So you're saying it won't be backward compatible? I find that highly unlikely.

Listening to Matt Frazer, manager retail services Panasonic, talking about the 12-35mm f/2.8 v.2 at CES, he says that the new lens will have a new aperture system so you won't see dithering when zooming as you're working with video. I never noticed this, but then again, I seldom zoom in or out once I've hit record. When asked about the original 12-35mm f/2.8 not having Dual IS v.2, he does not say the lens will not have any dual IS capability.

If the source is right:

"The new 12-35mm F2.8 II ASPH. POWER O.I.S. and 35-100mm F2.8 II POWER O.I.S. now have a black finish. They also have new iris mechanisms that are supposed to give smoother aperture transitions when shooting video. One bit of good news for owners of the existing versions of the 12-35 and 35-100 is that those lenses will get a firmware update at some point to make them work with the Dual I.S. 2 system."

That's great news for existing users of the now "older" f2.8 zooms. If the source is right?

I said "if the source is right" because right now we got some information here and there from various media or people who got the info by some rep somewhere, etc. Plus the article mentions "those lenses will get a firmware update at some point". So I'll just wait and see until we have solid conformation from Panasonic.

Indeed.  This source says no at about 2:55.  He also says that the Anamorphic will be h265, for those that have that interest.

To be fair, her being the main subject was our choice and no one else's.  

Actually I wasn't referring to her being in every shot (and making every shot consequently that much better) but simply that Bondini regarding "Neumann Films" as just a man is actually the sexist part, not Panasonic. It jumps on the SJW train and disrespects both the quality of work involved in all the promos, and the actual people involved (like M)

The difference is in the ability of the lens drive, not the body. The older lenses will still have dual IS mk1. Why on earth would you think otherwise? http://shop.panasonic.com/dual-is

Trust me...we're on the same page but unfortunately, not everyone else is.

And when Panasonic releases Dual IS Mk III in 2018, all the earlier lenses will be worthless too. ?

There is a Dual IBIS Firmware update for the 12-35. Ver. 1.3.

I am not sure if the list above referred to the older 12:35 or to the new one. 

I refer to the "old" one. 

The old me is listed by its Mega OIS system, and the new one has a Power OIS system

I never said anything about Neumann Films being a man. But "Luke Neumann Filmmaker/Neumann Films" is a man, as he is credited in the promo about 4 dudes with cameras. That's an incontrovertible fact, so stop making up stuff and show me your cute buns already.
