Stabilised lenses v In body stabilisation?

Was wondering if anyone could clarify if one works better than another? Are stabilised lenses like an OM 10 for example ie 5 axis stabilised or just 2 axis like a GX7 Panny body? I have a G5 and am in a quandary as to go for a stabilised body or just purchase a panasonic OIS. I also have a panny 14mm, sigma 30 & 60mm and a samyang 7.5 fisheye.

Hope that made sense and thank you for any help.

All I can say is that if you have 2-axis like in the PM2 and you have a Panasonic 12-32 lens like I do, you should set it to lens priority stabilization. The PM2's 2-axis blurs images a slight bit in order to do its task.
