Airless: Why do you review this before the E-PL5 which is clearly a much better camera???

The E-PL5 is a much uglier camera.

bluevellet: Is this... the highest rating for an entry-level, mirrorless camera at DPR? It looks like it.

What makes this camera slightly better than, say, the NEXF3 (closest rival reviewed at DPR)?

1) M43 lenses are smaller than e-mount at same equivalent lengths.
2) There are many more amazing M43 lenses available.
3) The IQ although with a smaller sensor is comparable to NEX.

I have loved my GF1 for 18 months, and was very interested in the GX1, but yesterday ordered a NEX 5N. Although I was loathe to have to deal with larger lenses and concerned about the long-term viability of the NEX platform, I have always wanted to make some shoestring cinema and the GX1 leaves a lot to be desired. No 60p or 24p. No manual control in movie mode.

So I will be lugging around a bigger lens that may be obsolete when Sony goes bankrupt or sensor size becomes a moot point, on a camera with worse AF performance, better IQ, better VQ, manual control in movie mode, extras like Sweep Panorama, faster continous shooting, and a cheaper body price to boot.
