IBIS cannot stop subject movement - so bad argument

Only in your mind. IBIS helps in most cases, and 5 axis IBIS helps even more. That is why Sony and Panasonic will adapt it.

BTW I overstated since the E-P3 had already 2 stop of IBIS, so in one generation only we earned two stops.

Add 2 stops of SNR, and we have *4* stops more available. No fast lens full open is going to give you that, especially not at full resolution.

Of course this doesn't mean that you cannot use fast lenses at full aperture, but there will definitely be less of a need.
