How well does the Panasonic GX7 perform with lenses that lack OIS like the Zuiko 12-42 EZ pancake?

The great thing about the MFT standard is that there is a lot of selection to choose from in terms of lenses. But is it really a good selection when most Olympus lenses do not have OIS?

I am wondering this because I am thinking of buying the above lense. I am hesitant because I do not know how well those lenses would perform for photography (only sensor-shift stabilization) and family video (NO image stabilization in this mode!)?

Does anyone here have any experiences with this sort of thing?
