    Thinking about the G7 as a purely video camera that can be used as a back up for stills to my EP5. Does the 14-140 II really have a problem with "the jitters" when used properly for video? What's the quality like in comparison with the PZ lenses? Thanks.

    I have a 14-140ii on order, and that train video is interesting. Seen others like it. On all my Lumix OIS lenses I get substantial "jitter" when panning video side to side when I forget to turn horizontal stabilization off. Turning it off solves the issue. This video shows jitter both horizontally and vertically and is something I have not noticed on my lenses. While I don't pan much, usually steady hand held, I would obviously not want the 14-140ii stabilization to perform any worse than the mega OIS lenses I have.
