Panasonic G95, lenses + Canon G5X mark II

I’m considering upgrading my G5X mark II with a camera + lenses, that will give better IQ photos. I decided on Panasonic 95 with

  • 1. LUMIX G LEICA DG SUMMILUX Lens, 15mm, F1.7 ASPH. (H-X015K) and
  • 2. Panasonic Lumix G Vario 14-140mm f/3.5-5.6 II ASPH. POWER O.I.S. (H-FSA14140)

other options:

  • 3. Panasonic Lumix G X Vario 35-100mm f/2.8 II POWER O.I.S. (H-HSA35100)
  • 4. Panasonic Lumix G Vario 45-200mm f/4-5.6 II POWER O.I.S. Lens

I do not consider the kit lens Panasonic Leica DG Vario-Elmarit 12-60mm f/2.8-4 ASPH. POWER O.I.S (H-FS12060), because this range is completely covered by the G5X mark II (5x 24-120mm equiv.). However I am not sure that the Panasonic 12-60mm will give a better image quality than the fixed lens on the Canon.

I plan to use the Panny for higher quality images with prime lens and telephoto beyond the 120mm of the Canon and use the G5X for mid-range photos, reducing the hassle of lens changing on the G95.

Question 1: Will all POWER O.I.S. lenses give Panasonic's "Dual I.S." stabilization with G95?

Question 2: Will the 15mm, F1.7 prime lens (#1 above) give higher quality than the Canon G5X II. (Please use the attached photo here as a reference: JPG out of camera.)

Question 3: Do you have experience with lenses 3) and 4) above?

Thank you for your replies.
