They seem to be about the same price though there are some new GM1 kits out of Japan and Taiwan that would actually be new GM1 bodies (or bodies lens kits for just $100 more). Pros and Cons E-PL6 (in no particular order) Same battery as my E-M10 Prefer the Olympus interface Tilt screen More physical control points Larger Older Pros and Cons GM1 (in no particular order) Smaller Newer WiFi built in flash Part of the point of this second body is size Not sure if the image quality is really any different. Overall handling I would think should favor the E-PL6 while there is no question about the size benefit. I was fine with the output from the GX1 I had, but not the handling. At the time it was my only m4/3 body and not just the always on me option. I now have the E-M10 for that. I did pick up an RX100, but there are some little things that I'm just not thrilled with, one big one being the AF. It's fine for a P&S (good in fact for the class). But it's not m4/3 fast either. And after using m4/3 for a while the zoom by wire...... Well I have the 45-175 and that zoom by wire is still light years ahead.
