These two m4/3 cameras seem like the two heavyweight rivals from Olymponic, yet the forum get 10 times the talk and traffic regarding the em-1. Why?

I don't know... I choose GX7 (and GM1) because I entered m43 with a GF1. I like how Panasonic menus are and how it handles. At the time GF1 became an enthusiastics camera. I can imagine that Olympus buyers are brand loyal as well. Perhaps more beginners chose Olympus small cameras then in stead of Panasonic. When you're used to a certain menu system it's easier to buy within that brand I guess. At least to me that is. I don't like Olympus' menus which I tried so I still am a happy Panasonic shooter! To me the GX7 is a great camera. I bought GM1 first and doubted to purchase GX7 as well. I am glad I did. Both are great cameras for different purposes. And together they make a great pair.
