It'll be fine except in some very odd circumstances.

My E-PL3 only does 1/160. That's not much better in terms of professional work (which I do with it routinely) -- and EVERY professional in the world using a full frame 35mm film camera was restricted to 1/60th of thereabouts back in the day.

And hey, they (we! dammit) managed to do pretty well!

I think you're shying at shadows.

The great thing about the GM1 is that it will be in your hand when no other camera is around providing top class IQ.

Cheers, geoff

Great point. We get spoiled with higher sync speeds these days. Maybe I should have a re-think, and assess the flash sync speed I really need.
