    I was interested in the Panasonic gm to compliment my Olympus em10 since its small and it has a evf .
    The gm5 is not sold in my country so i have to tell my friend to send me , but the Sony rx100 series is available in my country . if the evf is same in the gm5 i can go around and play with the Sony and see if it can suit me , or how big difference is in between the em10 and gm5 evf ?
    Thanks in advance .

    A planet called Gaia
    as taken from info in imaging-resource (numbers are 35mm equivalent):

    gm5 - 0.46x
    e-m10 - 0.58x
    rx100 - 0.59x
    gx7 - 0.7x
    e-m1/e-m5 II - 0.74x

    i use both e-m5 II and gm5, and while the gm5's evf is much smaller, it's still usable at least for me. :)
