Is it better to stick with Olympus or Panasonic lenses with the respective system cameras?

Re: Sometimes Yes, Sometimes No

I generally prefer Panny and "Leica" branded lenses regardless which brand body. I started out with strictly Panny, but the GX1 now only serves as backup since I moved to Oly bodies (E-P5, E-M10s). I only have a few M.Z primes, no zooms. Although I was interested I avoided the Panny 7-14 due to the issue with Oly bodies. None of my crossbrand combinations have issues that affect image quality.

For the record, I initially chose Panny lenses because of the stabilization thinking that I might eventually switch back to a Panny body. Since Panny has since adopted IBIS that point is now moot.

The Panasonic-Leica DG Summilux 15mm f1.7 lens has a working aperture ring, plus an AF/MF switch. Both work on Panasonic bodies but are disabled on Olympus bodies.

The AF/MF switch on the 15mm Summilux works correctly on my E-M10 and E-M10 II.
