I recently agonised over that one for some time.

At first I was convinced I was going to buy the GX7, but in the end I bought the E-M10. In the flesh, the GX7 seemed just a bit big and boxy compared to the E-M10, which feels so good in the hand. But you may think the opposite way. I sacrificed the tilting viewfinder, and maybe gained slightly better stabilisation. I also sacrificed better video choices, but I don't really do video. Having looked at all the pros and cons, it was just the look and feel that swayed me. I liked having the word Olympus on my camera and my lenses! In other words, this is the sort of choice you have to make with your heart. But I'm glad I chose the Olympus. It's the best camera I've ever had. I would probably have said that about the GX7 too!
