have M, but thinking about buying a used GX1 for m43 fun

I have just sold my Panasonic DMC-GX1 to finance (partially) my second EOS M double kit purchase.

I am really enjoying the EOS M. Now I have decided to have a different color -  Bay Blue (Canon marketing works!).

I am also planning to dive into 3D photos, and the EOS system is the only one on the market which supports remote shutter release via hot shoe, which I think is a great (but expensive) feature. But there seems to be a chineese analog of the Canon ST-E3-RT is on its way.

After using my EOS M for nearly 2 weeks now, I came to conclusion that that the GX1 (despite being a great camera) was feeling more bulky than I wanted it and is looking a bit outdated. I still prefer metal buttons on the GX1, and I will be missing the digital level... but the EOS M is so fun to use.

I went from M43 to Next to Eos M. While I love eos M, I often thought about picking up a used GX1 for:
* ultra fast AF
* BUILT-IN "Bounceable" flash - so I carry a bulky external flash
* Olympus 45/1.8 - no one has a portrait lens this small

then again, a 2nd Eos-M is also a good idea. Eos M is so cheap its almost hard too resist buying a second one.
