I recently sold my gx-7 which I regret. I was thinking of getting an xt10 later in the year but while having a casual look at the E-m10 mkii, i found that there were some E-m1's available locally for 130usd. The price of the E-m1 body at 667usd with an sd card, one original battery and one generic battery seems quite tempting. Apart from it's size, I am not a fan of the E-m10 ii, it feels heavier than my E-m10 did despite being around the same weight. Also, the way I pick up the camera means my thumb slides along and rotates the rear dials, and like my old E-m10 I find it far too easy to rotate the front and rear dials while handling it. I've never considered the E-m1 seriously in the past due to it's astronomical price relative to my budget, and it's size. The whole reason I got into M43 was the pocketable bodies but after the past few years of having used narrow body camera's like the E-m5/10, GX1, EPl3 and ep3, I'm willing to go with something larger. The E-m1 doesn't feel that much heavier with the grip and besides, the other options like the E-M5mk2 and GX8 are both similarly sized. The thing is, I wasn't planning on spending this much money and I don't know if I need this much firepower. I'm a casual shooter, don't shoot raw or anything that needs 10fps or high buffering compared to what's already available with the cheaper bodies. These days I do photography while hiking so the grip is nice and the rugged, weathersealed body means there is less for me to worry about when I'm out. Also, earlier this year I sold my 25 1.4 and 12-35 so I won't have any good lenses to use with this body apart from my 12-50 and pana 14-42ii, and I won't be able to afford any others for some time. I like the E-m1 but I'm not sure I really need it.
