Re: I had the same situation earlier this week.

Me too. I bought a GX1 just after Christmas this year when they were first released. I then sold it as I had a E-M5 on preorder which I received last week. This was sent back and I have just received another GX1.

At the end of the day it's all down to personal requirements/taste etc. but although the E-M5 is obviously a very good camera I didn't think it was worth nearly twice what I paid for the GX1. I also much prefer the ergonomics of the GX1.

There's some good deals in the UK at present on GX1's - for instance you could have the GX1 + kit lens, the EVF, the Olympus 45mm and still have a nice wad of change towards whatever lens takes your fancy i.e. larger zoom etc.
