Olympus stabilized lenses question

I am trying to work out why so many Panasonic lenses have image stabilization, while Olympus seem to have so few.

All Panasonic web sites make it really east to search for lenses, and super easy to find which ones are stabilized.

The main Olympus web sites (US & UK) (a) often crash; (b) have filter features that just don’t work; and (c) seem to go out of their way to make searching for stabilized lenses almost impossible. It is so irritating that it is hard not to believe they are doing it on purpose.

This is not an Olympus bash. The new Olympus OM-D E-M10 Mark IV really appeals to me over the *way* overpriced (and not new now) Panasonic GX9. But the Panasonic lenses just seem so much more approachable.

Either camera would be so much lighter than my old clunky Sony A55 + Sony Zeiss 16-80!
