I have talked to people who have used it and it is a great lens but does the GH2 support IA operation with it?

Jim,

Yes - as long as you use a Panasonic or Olympus OEM adapter such as the Panasonic DMW-MA1, Olympus MMF-1 or http://www.amazon.com/Olympus-260964-MMF-2-Lens-Adapter/dp/B003BWHGI8.

There are less expensive 3rd party adapters, like this one from China, but they may not be 100% compatible.

You can also get an even less expensive "dumb" adapter like this one, but you would have no IA, no auto aperture, and no autofocus.

I was able to find a used MA1 for about the same price as the Chinese unit, but I had to shop around for quite some time.

If you need it now, I'd go ahead and buy it new or used from Adorama or http://www.amazon.com/Panasonic-DMW-MA1-Lumix-Mount-Adapter/dp/B001ISKNKK.

Hope this is useful.
