    You know, I like the look of the GM1. I might do a swap for my E-PL5 if the price is right (£300 body only is where I think it needs to be).

    Looks sharp enough to me , whats also interesting is the 1/16,000 shutter speed on the camera

    This body right now is waaaaaay overpriced. I saw it (with the kit lens) on a Japanese site (Map Camera) for around $900 and I've seen the MSRP for the US being listed as $750...both astronomical for what you're getting. Don't get me wrong, I think it's a cool little camera and I'm constantly wanting to see more of it and I know it'll have great IQ thanks to the GX7 sensor/processor...but no IBIS, minimal controls, no EVF, no HD video, etc...the price is too steep.

    If the price goes the way of most Panasonic cameras, it'll be half that within the year!

    How is this lens compared to the 14-42mm II?

    I am counting on it. Maybe they will slash the price when the GM-2 is announced? That's the best time to buy a camera is when a newer model hits. I wonder if this little camera is a big seller what Olympus will do.

    I assume the sky was overcast the whole time which is why the images are mostly flat.

    Hope you can do some sample images at night as well.

    Personally I feel the price point - US$750 - is pretty attractive especially considering it is a new camera/lens. If the lens is as good as it is supposed to be - 'best IQ' as well as 'smallest' for a kit lens - then US$350 for the lens alone is not unreasonable. That makes the camera US$400 which for what seems a nicely built, designed, tiny M43 with the latest sensor seems pretty ok to me also.

    That's what I am thinking! When they start selling the body alone $400 is very reasonable and would be a great second kit. Keep the E-M5 with the two larger zooms and get some small, fast primes for the GM-1. Sounds like a good plan to me.
