G2 and oly 4/3 lens OIS

Spoke to a couple of dealers yesterday as I want to go and try out the G2 and E-PL1.

Asked them about several things including IS and was told that (obviously) the E-PL1 has IBIS so there would be no problem using my existing 4/3 lenses with an adapter but one dealer said that they would also be fine on the G2 as the OIS is still set in camera - once it was switched on any lens without an on/off switch (ie the panasonic 14-45 and 45-200) would therefore still be stabilised.

Could anyone with the G2 and oly 4/3 lenses + adapter confirm this, as it's not what I had thought?
