i never even thought of testing stabilization by slowing the shutter speed step by step.

i used to have a kit-lens quality panny 45-200 i used on my GF1 and G3 cameras, and the lens stabilization worked surprisingly well.

You might have a more torlance standard.

I had long time doubt on 45~200 throughout the period from G1 (when I bought 45~200), GF3 and GX1. Specially on GX1, despite at its sweetest spot (f/7.1~8), I still couldn't get the required sharp output (SOOC) consistently. I blamed my poor handling skill, sometimes my poor physical condition.

Later while Panny users started to discuss on shutter shock was not only happened to the IBIS of OMDS, due to the over sensitive lens OIS component of some lenses which would react to noisy M-shutter, shutter shock actually happened to Panny non IBIS bodies. Many comment on this lens but until I got GX7 which has e-shutter, I finally confirm 45~200 (at least true to my copy) should be another shutter shock magnet after 14~42PZ.

Is G3 M-shutter only?

Yes. If I remember correctly, the G3 had ES in the form of a video - really useless.

The G5 was the first with ES but it was not very good. I had both cameras and, in this respect, neither compare to my EM5II.
