Reading various reviews, this is either a major problem or not an issue. You do loose edges with the stabalization on with the AX100, but more importantly is the stabalization effective with the camera handheld.
The GH4 also has different views on how well stabalization works. Has anyone who owns these cameras offer a review on how well they work in the field.

I am not sure what you mean by edges but if you mean that you loose wide angle then yes; as with every software stabilization there is a certain amount of crop necessary.

I have a GH4 and the 12-35mm lens with POWER O.I.S. Image Stabilization. I usually Tripod, slider or crane everything, but have had no big problems with "jitter" or shake - no different than other camera's I've used. Handheld with the OIS going seemed fine - I don't notice anything out of the ordinary other than the normal and expected slide/push movements of stabilization doing its thing. I've read others had problems with OIS jitter and you can probably find examples of that on YOUTUBE, but not everyone has that issue. Lots of great footage coming out.
Lenses without OIS, like all my canon's, do what they do: shake if you shake camera

The latest Mercalli 4 makes the claim that it does not zoom in and lose the edges, and from what I have seen in using it, it appears to be true.
