These two m4/3 cameras seem like the two heavyweight rivals from Olymponic, yet the forum get 10 times the talk and traffic regarding the em-1. Why?

I find that a lot of people express their opinions based on ignorance of what else is out there. A lot of long time Olympus users here who can't be bothered to even learn about or try anything else. Hence, Oly is the best for them.

I have a GX7 and the GM1 on the way. The GX7 came with the 20mm f1.7 and after selling the 12-32mm from the GM1 kit I will have spent the same amount for those three items as the cost of the E-M1.

I'm sure the E-M1 is a great camera but all the research I've done does not support a cost that is over twice as much as the GX7 when you subtract out the cost of the lens If purchased separately.

I also preferred the smaller body size of the GX7 and the menu system.

Then you don't value an excellent view finder, superb ergonomics, robustness, and performance. With the GX7 and GM1 you only get, what you pay for it, which is significantly less in both cases.
