All of the zooms will include OIS.  The primes will not.  None of the Fuji primes that have been roadmapped to-date really need OIS.  I presume Fuji will do a good job of it in the zooms.

It is uncommon for primes to include OIS.  Panasonic's M4/3 primes do not (to my knowledge) include it.  You probably gain some marginal advantage in the Olympus bodies when using primes.  Perhaps one stop?  But I don't see it as a big deal, and it did not deter me from pre-ordering the X-E1 with kit zoom.

If I'm shooting a situation that really requires OIS, I'll use the zoom.
