Hi, just got Omd M10 with Panasonic 14-140 zoom lens. I need help from experienced users, which would give better results. In body stabilization or lens based stabilization. I guess we have to choose one pf them during shooting to have better results

Help will be appreciated

No choice, the Panny OIS won't work with Olympus cameras
Incorrect. Both versions of the Panasonic 14-140 have OIS that can be used on any Olympus body, even the old ones.

I only had a chance to test the OIS on the older Panasonic 14-140/4.0-5.8 on the E-M5, but based on that, I'd stick with IBIS. It's possible that the newer Panasonic 14-140/3.5-5.6 has improved the OIS mechanism, but I'd still bet on the IBIS being more effective.

So for a EM-10 the 100-300 panasonic should be the better option in this regard?

I just got the E-M10 a month ago, having used a GH1 for five years, as well as 3 Pana lenses with OIS. Since getting the E-M10, I've fooled around with both options and settled on using the Oly IBIS. There is a menu setting that allows priority to in-lens stabilization over in-body. I've got that turned off; I prefer Olympus' stabilization (or at least am very confident in it's abilities).

I use the P100-300 on my E-P3 - no problem with focus hunting, ever. OIS stabilizes the image on the LCD better than IBIS, but I haven't noticed a difference in actual photos. I have experimented with both and only use the OIS at 300mm.

Better than what?

The Oly 75-300?

The Pana has OIS, but supposedly has some focus hunting on Oly bodies.

I have hundreds, probably thousands, of exposures with that lens on my E-M5 and E-M1 bodies - I have never experienced focus hunting.

I'm using Pana 14-140mm f3.5 (new version) with E-M10. Power OIS is definitely better than IBIS. IBIS is most useful for primes.
