Panasonic Lumix GX7 vs. Olympus OM-D E-M10 In Body Image Stabilisation (IBIS) comparison

The GX7 is the first Panasonic mft camera with In Body Image Stabilisation (IBIS), while Olympus had it from the beginning of their mft offering. The Olympus PEN's had 2-axis IBIS, but I wasn't excited about these. Olympus improved it in their OM-D line with 5 axis in the E-M5 and E-M1 and at least 3 axis in the E-M10. The GX7 comes with only 2 axis IBIS, so just from the number of stabilized axis, it probably won't be a match for even the E-M10, or does it?
Time for a comparison, on the left side the GX7, on the right side the E-M10.














Obviously, the GX7 performed much better in this comparison. Because the E-M10 was so much below my expectations, I took several shots at most speeds and took the best shot out of 4. The GX7 only had one try, so in practical use the difference is even bigger.
I have no idea, if the E-M10 results suffer from the shutter shock issue. I did all GX7 with the Electronic Shutter (ES). On the E-M10, I tried several Anti Shock settings. But these did not help much.
Of course, I don't want to generalize on this simple test. Maybe, with a different lens or a different focal length, the result might look different. Another blogger came to similar results on his page. So I think, that it is fair to say, that the 2 axis IBIS of the GX7 is at least on par, if not better than the 3 axis IBIS on the E-M10.
