GM1 with Oly Primes: does the lack of IBIS matter?

Hello everybody

I’m planning to buy the GM1 as a camera for concerts.

I will use it with the Oly 17mm 1.8 and the Oly 45mm 1.8

So: No IBIS at all.

How much will that matter?

Maybe hard to answer I know… but the thing is that I simply don’t know how important IBIS REALLY is.

I’m planning to shoot wide open (1.8) in low light situations with ISO at 1600 or so.

Will I really suffer from the lack of IBIS?

Any ideas?

Thanks a lot
