What doesn't help much is the big DSLR type bodies, EM5 EM1 GH3, they should play on the size aspect, small and compact -

The OMD's nowhere as big as GH3

Not a big dslr body on the EM5... AT ALL.

I don't think you understand... choice is GOOD.

Both Oly and Panasonic have the smaller series. By having both options they are hedging their bets.

retro like the GX7 will appeal to a huge market of hipsters who like taking photos and also wants something that looks good around their necks. Just look at the number of celebs who carry Leica's around their necks, no way they are using those because they like the leica look.

Hmm? It's the same thing with luxury watches, worn and used by complete wankers. Not dissing leica's but rather the people who use them as status symbols.

This is partly the reason for the success behind the X100, I only saw a photo of david beckham last month with one.
The word 'micro' doesn't help either - it plays into the hands of the 'bigger is better' philosophy.

I will happily avoid all association with moronic celebrities.
