Using PEN body + Pana/Oly lenses - inconvenient?

I am close to getting the following:

  • Oly E-PL3

  • Panasonic 20mm f1.7

  • Panasonic 14-42mm f3.5-5.6 X

  • Panasonic 45-175mm f4.0-5.6 X

  • Olympus 35mm f3.5 macro

As you can see, I will end up with a mix of lenses with and without IS. The way I understood it, for the lenses that feature in-built IS but without an off switch, I need to turn IBIS off in E-PL3, otherwise I will have no IS overall.

I know the 20mm doesn't have IS. 35mm probably doesn't have it either. The two X lenses have built-in IS.

So, does this mean if I am flipping between the 20mm and 14-42, I need to go into the menu and change IS setting, each time I switch the lens???
