... I do worry a bit that the lens doesn't have IS, which means that one has to get also an Olympus camera to get the most out of it.

I think it's more open for panny bodies without OIS then with:

  • The G9 and G85 IBIS are pretty much on par with the E-M1.1 and E-M5.2 (not quite E-M1X claimed level, true),
  • Oly cameras can do Sync IS if the oly lens has OIS,
  • Panny bodies turn off IBIS if the lens has OIS, no option to choose otherwise.

(I'm not saying you should match this lens with a panny instead of oly body, just that it's pretty level playing ground because it doesn't have OIS.)
