Tried a EM-1 and GM1

Hi There

I briefly tried an EM-1 today. I must say it feels a lot nicer than my EM-5 and ful grip in the hand. The VF is also much improved. The ergonomics are in a different league from the EM-5. None of this makes me want to jettison the EM-5 but it did surprise me how nice the EM-1 was.

The GM1 left me rather underwhelmed, although it handled quite a lot better than I thought it would given the size. I wish it had a small VF like the LF1 but there we go. I will definitely be buying one as a go anywhere, and will probably just use it with the kit lens. I would have it over the RX 100 for the option to use my other lenses and the bounceable flash which is a big plus for me.
