Granted, it's a good product, but it doesn't seem to fill a need for very many people. It is being outsold by its own stablemate, the GX7, which is being outsold by the E-M1. The GM1 did not even place in the DPR poll - it came in 6th in the MILC poll even though the regulars here probably represent its target market.

Seems to me the "product of the year" for serious photographers should at the very least have a hot shoe. Not to mention a viewfinder, or a way to add one.

It's a cute, usable camera, in the same way the Canon Dial 35 was a cute half frame camera back in the day. But it's not product of the year.
