With Panasonic lenses on Olympus bodies, you can either use the lens stabilisation or the in-body stabilisation of the camera, but you cannot use both in conjunction. Double IS only works with bodies and lenses of the same manufacturer.

That's good to hear,

I found a Panasonic 25mm F1.7, it's $200 less RRP however doesn't match the whole retro look the Olympus combo unit provides.

That's expensive, or is that a different $?

It's still $148 (US) from Amazon, I have one lying around unused on the shelf my wife would love me to get rid of. I prefer the 20/1.7.
