Which is better:

LUMIX G X VARIO PZ 14-42mm F3.5-5.6 ASPH. POWER O.I.S.


LUMIX G VARIO 12-32mm F3.5-5.6 ASPH. MEGA O.I.S.

And what is the difference between POWER OIS and MEGA OIS?

One potential advantage for a power zoom lens (may not apply to your current camera) is the power zoom enables zooming control when shooting remote control via WiFi (OK depends on how well the WiFi app is done, or whether the camera FW allows this, but without power zoom you don't have the zooming possibility at all). Drone shooting, planting a camera close to a bird's nest, etc. could all benefit.

With a mechanical zoom you need to build a zooming control contraption yourself, which could be quite challenging for the majority of photographers.
