I know it's not a problem with Oly bodies. My point is that, with longer lenses, Olympus is shutting itself out of half the MFT market (owners of Panasonic bodies) by not including in-lens IS. I guess it's a tradeoff they've decided to make, probably figuring that they'd sell fewer lenses to Olympus users if they were bigger and more expensive due to the inclusion of in-lens IS.

And Panasonic is shutting itself out of half the MFT markets (people who have bought non-stabilised Olympus lenses). And the lock-in via lenses lasts longer (you don't upgrade your lenses as frequently as your bodies).
