Re: Use Four Thirds Lenses with which other body

Almost perfect matches: Panasonic L1, Panasonic L10 (both being true traditional Four Thirds (4/3) bodies, but sorry w/o in-camera Image Stabilization...)

Proper Image Stabilization is obtained via in-lens O.I.S., VERY effective btw! So for every Olympus E-series camera (even for the sake of your older non-stabilizing Olympus E-1, E-300, E-500, etc.) these may actually be worth it :

-Panasonic LEICA D VARIO-ELMARIT 14-50mm F2.8-3.5 ASPH. MEGA O.I.S.
-Panasonic LEICA D VARIO-ELMAR 14-50mm F3.8-5.6 ASPH. MEGA O.I.S.
-Panasonic LEICA D VARIO-ELMAR 14-150mm F3.5-5.6 ASPH. MEGA O.I.S.

Note, however, that the super bright Panasonic LEICA D SUMMILUX 25mm F1.4 ASPH isn't stabilized.

In a sense, Panasonic-Leica 4/3 lenses handle better on Panasonic & Olympus 4/3 bodies (stabilized or not) than Olympus lenses (never O.I.S.) on Panasonic 4/3 bodies – especially longer Zuiko zooms with smaller maximum aperture like the 40-150mm, 70-300mm, etc.

Just my opinion, though.
