Hey people which one do you recommend between panasonic gx7 and olympus e-m10 for a 1,000 budget?

I think you are making a mistake not considering a quality used e-m5; can be found for around $550 now.

I'd be very nervous of the em-5, on reflection mine suffered very badly with shutter shock and yes I liked it better than the EM-1, but I would be apprehensive about getting another. The 0 shutter shock mode on the 1 and 10 definitely help, however, the GX7 in silent mode is something else for a MILC.

You know I've read about the shutter shock issue and I guess I'm lucky but never experienced it. Also my brother owns an e-m5 too and his has been well behaved as well. I agree on the silent mode. Lovely feature but if you don't really plan to use it....

Why wouldn't you plan to use it all the time? it's silent and zero vibration, what's not to like.
