Disillusioned with gx1

I must be getting old.  I've had the gf1 for a few years and had ok results with it. The 20mm f1.7 is nice.

However, after jumping from camera to camera (sigma dp1, sigma sd10, sigma sd15, Fuji x100), I decided to blow the cobwebs from my gf1 lenses and upgrade to the gx1. Good grief. I find it a very confusing camera to use. So many options and settings. So many opportunities to accidentally touch the screen and lose focus (though I can probably turn the touch screen features off.

out of the bunch I prefer my x100. No lens choices. Optical viewfinder. simple controls. No clever 'bells and whistles'.

Think I may sell my gx1 system and stick with my x100. It would be nice to have something wider too though. Perhaps the dp1m to go with my x100?
