My question still remains unanswered. Does this one keep focusing on the background instead of the subjects? GR-I had this problem.
When they will phase out Google+ ?
what_i_saw: So much for the mirror less cameras being small in size. At this rate soon the smallish to normal sized DSLR will be at par on size and feature front. And with their usual fast focusing abilities + comparatively cheaper lenses, soon we will have to take a re-look at them.
@Cipher - My only issue is the size. Anything bigger than OMD EM-5 (which includes OMD EM1 too) means that one should also have a look at other options like DSLR's with small form factor.
@Jacques Cornell - With a bright prime, IS ceases to be a deal breaker. And an optical viewfinder over EVF anyday for me. Rest of things do not matter to the way I shoot. And better S-AF??
I am happy with OMD EM-5 + 25mm oly prime.http://j.mp/1RCBceI#sthash.SVEw4xOK.dpuf
Given the size of GX8 I will actually go for nikon D3300 + a 35mm prime. That will make more sense.

what_i_saw: Does this one at least focus on subject instead of the background like the old one did?
@Hibiki Rush You are not the only one. I had started a thread on this issue and the replies as to how to fix this were so technical that I bought an OMD E-M5. GR now collects dust. Which is a shameThis is the thread:http://www.dpreview.com/forums/post/53766507
Funny how DPReview never came across this issue. Maybe they are technically sound enough to avoid this issue.

Where is "I don't want it" button?
I am not really impressed by the overcooked images here.
A desperate me too attempt. Nikon trying to protect it's turf and in process losing on both ends.

"Olympus stems the losses".
Is that distortion at the edges?I am seeing stretched corners. I thought that 24mm LX3 lens does that. Or the ones wider than that.
what_i_saw: Can it be carried in jeans pocket?That is crucial to my usage.
I today walked into the shop and tried a GRD IV.It slipped easily in my Jeans Pocket.My next camera will be Ricoh GR.

topstuff: It's all a bit "meh" is'nt it?
Is it just me or is it really hard to get enthusiastic about these shapeless black plastic lumps?
Good IQ is a given. But then you get great IQ with a NEX, or M4/3 or whatever.
Other manufacturers are starting to make cameras which are covetable. They are nice objects to own.
Canon don't seem to get this. All their products are so darn plasticky and dull and generally hard to love. At the leisure end of the market, this matters IMO.

I think what you really want to buy is some Jewellery. :-)
"In addition, she has been told by law enforcement officers that physically intervening, 'would have likely only made the situation worse, endangering me, and further endangering [the victim]'.
She might have taken the little girl away from the scene. Or would that have endangered someone in some way? Honestly I have very little respect for such photographers. Hope she enjoys her little "Sunshine" of attention.
I shudder to think what negative effect this will have on the little one. Why people have kids when they can't provide a proper home environment for them?
what_i_saw: I am not happy with the size of this thing. I might as well go and buy a Smallish DSLR instead of this one.
Video is never high on my list. And I am a Prime lens guy. You call this is A SMALL increase in body size?The very core of the Mirrorless premise was smaller bodies. This one looks like it is on steroids.
