This camera has much going for it and the 3.1 firmware boost has brought it up to snuff in many departments. It has the Sony 20Mpx sensor, in-cam battery charging, a straightforward interface unlike Lumix/Oly so patience and practice are needed.* The 4k video is here plus FHD, HD and a 4:3 "2k" mode that is nice when 16:9 is just too much extra space.

The 12-40mm is retractable but not Lumix-12-32 retractable; it zooms the Oly/Canon direction. Focus speed is fine in good light, OK otherwise (speed is equivalent to my Lumix 14-42ii); an AF assist lamp is available plus MF+peaking mode (the lower button by the screen bumps up magnification in MF+Pk mode). Nothing in the kit is stabilized and I've yet to prove definitively that OIS lenses are functioning recent reports are that only lenses with a physical OIS switch will stabilize on the M1 body. Lens takes 49mm filters.

I picked this up for a great price so my savings now become yours! :)

* I have neither of these available right now, and the GX1 is so comfortable to me that I'll just stick with that for now as my backup.
