Thanks! The setup works well although I do find the momentary blanking of the screen between shots a little distracting; will have to play around with the multi-shot mode to see if that helps speed things up.
I'm used to shooting through a proper OVF so despite shooting casual people shots with the GX-1 all the time, shooting "under pressure" was something to get used to; unfortunately, adding the LVF-2 to the setup will eliminate the ability to use a wireless trigger so I'll have to continue to tweak my camera setup so that it goes as smoothly as possible.

I had some issues with focusing (I'm used to have that fixed 1 of 11 or so focal points in the viewfinder; maybe I should play around with touch-activated shutter instead. I didn't really think through the camera setup before shooting so there were a couple of awkward moments but otherwise I had fun with the camera.
