If the GM-1 was sold as 'Body only' I might be tempted ...

You can always get the kit and sell the lens. But the lens is pretty nice although it's slow. The size is a good fit for the body.

Does the GM1 kit lens have the OIS switch on the lens?

No, the only control on the lens is to adjust the focal length. It doesn't even have a focus ring.

Will it work using it's OIS with older Panny cameras.?

Haven't tried that although I would certainly think so.

Otherwise pretty useless on older Panny's unless its just used on the GM1?

I would consider a GM1 if offered body only. Otherwise its a deal breaker for me.

Also I have mitts the size of a gorilla, so the GM1 without some kind of accessory grip may be too small for me.

In that case, I think you'll find the controls a bit small. Holding the camera is not a problem, you just can't hold it the usual way.
