    I have seen jello effect on Olympus EPL-3 on youtube. If I use Panasonic lens IS, will ths eliminate jello effect on video?
    My second question is does Panasonic lens IS provide better stablization in video than Olympus inbody IS?
    Thanks for any help in this regards as I am planning to buy EPL 3 or maybe EPL-5.

    The Panasonic lens will provide better IS for video. However, the overall 'jello' effect has to do with the way they implemented to rolling electronic shutter, so changing lenses won't fix it.

    Sometimes the IBIS can make the jello effect more pronounced. I get somewhat better results turning it off. A stabilized lens won't help the jello effect per se, but it will help stabilize the image.
