G2 or epl1

Evening all

For various reasons I never did take the plunge and buy into m4/3 last year but I really now want something decent with video capability now that my lovely granddaughter is nearly walking.

I very much like the G2 format and menus etc.. (I use a TZ10 as my walkabout and it already has video!) but I realise it only has lens IS whereas the Oly has in-body stabilisation. OTOH the G2 has an evf built in.

Does anyone have experience of just the basic oly non m4/3 kit lenses (14-42mk2, 40-150 mk2 and the 70-300) on the G2 or epl1? I've read conflicting reports here and elsewhere over the focus speed etc. so bearing in mind what I primarily want the camera for would they be any good, or would I really need m4/3 lens(es) - in which case I'll probably just have to stick to using the tz10 for video and that or my e600 for stills? I can't justify another new camera!!

Thanks in advance, as usual.
