Any comparisons of EM5 vs G5 in pure IQ terms?

I know the Panasonic 100-300mm lens fits and works on the EM5. But does the OIS work too, or does one have to rely on the Oly IBIS? gp

Yes OIS lenses work on Ollie camera bodies as long as you remember to turn the IBIS off.

Some do and some don't. The OIS on the 100-300 can be used since the lens has a hardware switch on the barrel for turning OIS on and off. The OIS on lenses without such a switch, for example, the 14-42/3.5-5.6, the X 14-42/3.5-5.6, and the X 45-175/4-5.6 can't be used on the E-M5 or any earlier Oly body.

My 14/ 2.5 lens, although it is Panasonic, (and no OIS switch) generally gets better results on my EPL-1 (with IBIS) than mounted on it's native GF-2, for that very same reason.
