I have been using a GX1 (with five Panny lenses) since January and it has become my primary camera. Coming from Canon DSLRs and L-lenses I had my doubts that m4/3s could become a full replacement. Being a hiker, I now carry this set with me always where the Canon set was often left behind because of size and weight.

The EVF is essential. It allows precise manual focus and much better viewing in daylight, and the flip-up feature is far better than a fixed one.
The only two negatives are:

The touch screen is easily activated accidentally (I turned it off). There are plenty of buttons to do whatever your needs are.
And I wish the buttons had texture to more easily find them without looking.
This is a fine little camera. I'm looking forward to next GX... versions.
