Does the GX1 get much love?

Is it possible that...

the EM5 is twice the camera compared to the GX1?

I swore to myself I'd never buy a camera without IBIS. But my GX1 is on order via Panasonic EPP with the X14-42 at $615.00. It's a patience war now being three weeks and no shipping. I forgot my VF-2 for the E-PL2 this weekend on a trip and was crushed once I realized it, but survived. It reinforced how much I depend on it. Thinking of ordering the EM5 and seeing what ships 1st. I've really started to dive deep into many functions and need quicker ways of changing parameters. Pressing this and turning that to get what I want from a scene slows down the enjoyment of the moment and the photographic process. I rarely purchase anything when it 1st comes out. I also don't think the EM5 has 2x the "marginal utility" for me.
BTW: the GX1 was/is $529 on Amazon. That's where the 2x comes from.
