It doesn't matter

Although I like the idea of having a choice between OIS and IBIS, having done some shooting with the E-M5, I've concluded that the IBIS in this camera is so good that it doesn't matter if  the camera  does not allow use of OIS.  The E-M5 IBIS clearly beats the OIS in the Panasonic 14-42x used on the GX1.

BTW, I really like the E-M5/14-42x combo: it's much more compact than the E-M5 with either olympus kit lens (12-50 or 14-42), with the Pana 14-42x  producing sharper results than on the GX1.
