wide angle 9-18

Not sure if this is the right place but mods feel free to move it ....
Recently dropped my gf1 and have been looking to replace it with maybe an e-pl2, I'd like the 0-MD but its way to expensive for my needs.

Anyway I have a few lenses panny 20mm, 14-45, 45-200 and the oly 9-18.

The oly and the 20mm have to be one of my favourite lenses.

So here's the question should I look for another gf1 used or an e-pl2 new {pretty much the same price} which is stabilised in body. How bigger effect will it have holding the 9-18 on a stabilised body as opposed to the non stabilized gf1.

The 14-45 and 45-200 have the option to turn the stabilisation of on the lens so they will not "talk" to the olympus body.

So lens stability or body stability when using the 20 and the 9-18 is what it boils down to as both the gf1 and the e-pl2 seem to be pretty similar spec wise.
