Panasonic or Olympus lens for backpack trecking?

I am regularly walking with my dogs on a hunting trail or trecking in no-mans land.

Carrying lightweight is allways important and I want to have my photo equipment as optimum as possible.

I have the E-M5 and the Pana GX-1 with wievfinder with several lenses, both Olympus and Panasonic lenses.

I wish to pick the right camera body with lenses that will give the best image quality, shooting RAW.
Landscape and wildlife are my subjects.

Pictures are shown on a HD TV screen or monitor 99,9% of the time. It is several years since I printed a picture.

Lense that I always will have with me are:
Panasonic 100-300
Panasonic 12-35
Olympus 45/1.8
Panasonic 14-140

I also have the Olympus 17/2.8, 14-42 II, 12-50, 40-150 and Panasonic 14-42 X.

My question is: Which camera body is preferred:

- Panasonic lenses on a E-M5 body, more uncorrected CA
- Olympus lenses on a Panasonic body: No IBIS

General question: Panasonic OIS perhaps less effective than Olympus IBIS for the long lenses.

My concern is if I give up something using the Panasonic lenses on the E-M5 body
Please, what are your preferences.

Cheers, Erik
