    Is it possible to use the touch focus while using the EVF on the GM5 like it is on the GX7?

    I don't have a GX7, but I assume you mean touch on the touch screen to select AF area while looking through the EVF with the LCD dark? Yes.

    That's a great feature. Pretty sure Olympus bodies don't do this.

    They should. Its one of those features that so obvious after you use it that you wonder why it hasn't been done by everyone. I'm pretty sure there is no patent, and they already have touch screens, so it should be easy.
