Re: Panasonic 100-400

Does this beg the question then (mk 2): assuming you can’t have both and can seemingly choose, which is best, body or lens IS?

This means that if a lens isn't a compatible (Olympus) Sync IS lens (such as 12-100 or 300 Pro) but another such as from Panasonic (that this thread is discussing) then it means it's one or the other IS (IBIS or OIS) as selected in Menu C that works on an Olympus camera (at least since E-M1), not both together.

I damaged the USB port. Now replaced but haven't got around to it.

At 400mm, I'm pretty sure that lens IS will deliver better stabilisation.

Haven't enough comparison to tell.

Re: Panasonic 100-400

In my experience the lens IS seems to be more power hungry than in body IS.

In theory it should do, but I've found IBIS to give sharper results in general use with this lens. Note, I'm not using very slow shutter speeds.
