    I test drove an E-M1 for an hour yesterday at Photo Expo and handled, fired the GX7 also. I am sure there is little difference in IQ between the two of them (stills). However, they are very different in how they feel, handling and controls. Lets leave it at that.

    Looking at pictures that someone else took of things that you didn't see in person, will only get you so far. The only way to know what a camera will do is to personally shoot many, many shots over a period of days of different subjects with different camera settings. Now, I've had an E-M5 for a year and a half, so I was looking for very specific differences between the 1 and the 5.

    I don't think that it's very productive to rationalize why it's ok to like a camera that someone else isn't also thrilled with.
