    I want a smaller camera than my E-M10 as a complement. I have a GF3 and a Canon S95 that I liked but it's not good enought anymore (image quality). I want something closer to my E-M10 regarding image quality.

    What I like about the G7x:
    - f1,8-2,8
    - 24-100 mm
    - DxOmark score

    What I like about the GM1
    - I can use all my mu43 lenses
    - I will use my 14/2,5 och 45/1,8 again (Mostly using 12-40/2,8 on my E-M10)

    What I don't like about the GM1
    - f3,5-5,6 (Pana 12-32 lens) so I guess I will use my 14/2,5 och 45/1,8
    - or no zoom if a use my 14/2,5 och 45/1,8

    Do not suggest the Pana LX100. It is to expensive and to big. Sony RX100 I or II could be an alternative. Any camera I missed?

    This....
    Though don't dismiss the 12-32 unless you can get a good deal fo a GM1 body.

    In Sweden it is around 390 $ without lens and 700 $ with lens. Lens stand alone 260 $. So right know it is cheaper to buy camera and lens stand alone.

    I have a Oly 14-42 EZ so I don't really need another small zoom that I hardly use. I will miss IS with the EZ lens but I can live with that.

    That makes sense, I sold the 12-32 as soon as I got the GM1 because I already had a kit zoom lens, but I knew I could sell the 12-32 for 2-3 times as much on ebay. Couldn't get the GM1 body only at the time when I bought it. Looking at your signature, you have a fine collection lenses to use on the GM1.
