Still got and use the gx100. I bought it in preference to the Panasonic lx ( better ui, better lens) and the grd ( thought I needed the flexibility of the zoom - wrong).  Nowadays it spends it's life set to 24mm in raw mode and we me hankering after the new gr.  It owes me nothing so gets taken to the beach, shoved in pockets and bags and acts as a wide angle backup to the d700 when attached to a big lens.

Positives: sharp wide open at 24mm, raw, great ui, macro, build quality, perfect feel, stealth, makes me feel good!

Negatives: excruciatingly slow raw write speed, not too sharp and slow at the long end, noisy at anything over ISO 80,  the Caplio branding (why?), worlds slowest af, limited dynamic range.

The positives significantly out weight the negatives for me and I still love it.
