Yeah... I wish the GX7 had IBIS for video. I would have picked it over the EM10.

I shoot a bit of video with my GX7. My first lens was the 20mm F1.7, and shaky video was an issue. Some times. I didn't want to chase my daughter around the yard, camera in hand, but there were many situations i did use it with great results. I ended up buying the 14-42 OIS kit for two reasons, one was to use it with video. It's not the best in super low light of course, but for moderate and good light, it evens things up. If im shooting a black cat at night, i have to be more careful or use a tripod.

I shoot more photos in low light, more video in good light. It's more than worth the tradeoff in order to get higher bit rates, more framerates, and sharper video. To some people, the best IBIS is more important than anything. For me, i get more out of a different approach.
