Olympus 12-100 stabilization sync question

I have been wrestling with the decision about which general zoom to buy - the Olympus 12-100 or the 14-150. I have just bought an UWA and either zoom, when paired with the UWA, will fill my general non-birding needs. The question has been which.

I have been tempted to buy the 12-100 based on the in-lens stabilization and its ability to synchronize with the in-camera IBIS. Olympus, in its advertising, says that this adds a great deal to the ability of the in-camera IBIS alone and I was wondering if it really does.

Is the difference in stabilization noticeable when using the 12-100 over using the 14-150? I realize that most people would not have both, so a direct comparison may not be possible, but for those who have the 12-100, do you notice much extra stabilization when shooting long over using lenses that do not have the in-lens stabilization? Perhaps some people have the 40-150 R and compare those two as it pertains to stabilization.

I just assume that the glass for the 12-100 is superior to the 14-150 and that the general images would also be superior, so I am concerned only about the stabilization right now.
