Which is better:

LUMIX G X VARIO PZ 14-42mm F3.5-5.6 ASPH. POWER O.I.S.

or

LUMIX G VARIO 12-32mm F3.5-5.6 ASPH. MEGA O.I.S.

And what is the difference between POWER OIS and MEGA OIS?

Second question first, MEGA OIS is the first optical image stabilization system introduced by Panasonic with in 2008.  Power OIS is supposedly an improved version introduced with their X lenses.

First question, depends on your preferences.  For me, I think 12 is more useful than 14, and I would take that over extra 10 mm offered by the 14-42.  But that is because i have an Olympus 45 mm.  Two mm does not seem to be much, but at the wide end, the 24 mm equivalent is way more useful than the 28 mm equivalent, but that is MY preference.
