Hi all I have been looking for smaller alternative for my trusty old E-P1 as a second body. My primary camera is and will be E-M5 with HLD-6 grip. Late last year I got 1 month old E-PM1, with 23 months warranty still left. I paid 90 euros for that. It was just too good a deal to pass. There are a lot of things to like about the E-PM1. It is small enough, actually I don't want any smaller camera. It is good looking and, to me at least, it feels well built. I like the Oly 12mp output on low ISO levels (100-800) but ISO 3200 is horrible, honestly. It's about the same as ISO6400 on new 16mp sensors. I like IBIS, it's as good as the one on E-P1. Very useful with prime lenses in low light. E-PM1 is compatible with the same batteries as my E-P1, so no need to buy new batteries. The UI is also very familiar. I have used only Olympus DSLR and MILC cameras since 2009, so there was almost nothing new to learn in that. Only new thing was that MENU button brings first the Mode dial functions and from there you select PASM, iAuto, Scenes etc or the main menu. So it's usually two button presses more before you are in the settings menu. I got pretty excited about the rumours of E-M5 mk2. Ok, it will be announced tomorrow and we don't know any facts yet. But if the better video codec and electronic shutter will be true, it would be a great upgrade for me. Also Wifi connectivity and focus peaking are things that I would appreciate. But so it happened that two weeks ago I was driving on holiday trip and missed a 60km/h speed limit sign and kept driving 84km/h on to an automatic surveillance camera. A week later I got a fine of over 600 euros for doing so. That lowered my GAS pretty well. Yesterday morning I thought I was all set for this year, since I am not willing to upgrade my OM-D after paying the speeding ticket. But as usual the best deals come when you least expect/want them. There it was, e-mail from the largest camera retailer in Finland, the Rajala camera. The deal of the month for Rajala club members: Panasonic GM1 in all colors with 12-32mm kit zoom only 299 euros. For reference E-PL7 with normal 14-42 is 499 eur and GM5 with 12-32 is 699 eur. So here I am, a fragile human being following its instincts. I made the order for the GM1 without a care of tomorrow. I did sell my second FL-36R flash for 110 eur the same day on Finnish camera forum. I paid for that 140 eur 4,5 years ago, so I think it held its value pretty well. I have already put the E-PM1 for sale. It has 1,5 years warranty left so I think it will be pretty easy to sell forward. I am really looking forward to the GM1. In many ways it is even better than my E-M5. It has the latest gen sensor, good video output, electronic shutter, wifi remote control and file transfer. Against E-PM1 it has better quality screen and touch support. It also has direct control for manual focus, because I like to lock auto focus from time to time, not that I'm using manual focus that often. It has a proper mode dial too. I'm still unsure which one will have to go: 12-32mm or 9-18mm. I'm planning to use 14mm f/2.5 most of the time. Just my story...comments welcome.
