Nothing revolutionary with the EM-1 as product of the year considering no big and dramatic change from EM-5.

No big dramatic change?  Well, maybe that's true.  Everything and I mean everything (except maybe long shots with no NR) is an improvement over the E-M5. EVF, controls, features, ergonomics, focusing system etc... the list goes on and on. Maybe there isn't a single thing that stands out, but together?  It's a dramatically different camera than the E-M5.

I really want to get a GM1, but for the DPReview readers I think there are too many tradeoffs for the size to appeal to a lot of people. It will really appeal to certain group, but it's more of a second camera for most of the people here. Not their primary.
