I have an LX5 that I've used as a pocket camera for several years. Use it quite a bit when skiing. It's getting pretty beat up and I've been looking to upgrade. Everything I've looked at has issues or prices that have kept me from upgrading. I'm seeing the GM1 w 12-32 for about $497 and it's tempting. Questions/concerns: What steps do you have to do to take the camera out of a pocket, get it turned on, get the lens extended, and then reverse the process? I'm kind of concerned with fiddling around with it in the cold and probably wearing liner gloves. I would probably get one of the JJC automatic opening lens caps, cause I can't see myself dealing well with lens caps when skiing. Anyone have any experience with that kind of automatic lens cap? And would it work with filters? I also hear it's very easy to press the 4-way controller when trying to turn the dial. For a lot of stuff I'd pretty much put it in Aperture priority, probably dial in a little exposure compensation, and shoot away. So not very concerned about those kind of handling issues with this camera. That said, if settings are getting changed everytime I put it in and out of my pocket, I'll get frustrated. I'm also concerned about relying on the LCD since I have old eyes that don't see well up close, but that's something I'm just going to have to either decide is OK or bite the bullet for a camera with EVF. Would probably also use the camera with my 17 and 45, but this would be an adjunct to an E-M5. Thanks.
