What is your biggest disappointment about GM1?

Seriously, though (in order of disappointment)…

1. Miss IBIS (from Olympus cameras)

2. Battery life

3. NR control (still NR is used even when NR is set at -5 maximum reduction)

4. Egonomics could be better (e.g small thumb grip on the back)

5. No sweep panoramic mode

However, saying that, it is a fantastic compact camera! Really impressed with the AF, customisation ability, menu system, ISO ability, silent mode, and improved colour of its jpeg engine (got rid of a GX1 because of that).

One other thing I love and find handy about it is the x3 shot timer mode. I really missed this feature from a Nikon D90 I owned before where the self-timer could take multiple shots in sequence. This camera can take three in a sequence which is great for group shots (where someone is bound to have closed eyes), so you have a selection to choose from.
