I'm considering buying a GH4 for video shooting and was wondering if all the 4 lenses listed below offer good image stabilization when shooting video or are some much better or worse in that regard? Thanks

Lumix G Vario 14-45mm f/3.5-5.6
Lumix G Vario 14-42mm f/3.5-5.6 II
Lumix G Vario 14-140mm F/4.0-5.8
Lumix G X Vario 12-35mm F/2.8

The 12-35 is the lens to go for if your shooting video, very versatile lens.

lens for GH4

The 12-35 is the lens to go for if your shooting video, very versatile lens.

The VSO14140 works good in good light for Video
Silent Design for HD Movie Recording
Optical Image Stabilizer
The 12-35 is quite a bit better than the 14-140 in all situations, especially stills.
It is both sharper and faster.

I plan on picking up a 35-100 f/2.8 soon for longer shots
