I finally made up my mind to get the EM1. I have both EM5 and GX7that I use regularly. Should I keep the EM5 or GX7? I like both cameras and have no problem with the mannuals, operation and IQ. I Like the EM1 because I have a couple of 3/4 lenses and also handling and responsivness.

I have the EM5 and EM1, its very nice that these cameras share batteries, which means less batteries and chargers to pack when traveling. Its also nice that the controls and UI are very, very similar.

I've considered swapping my EM5 for a GX7 (mostly for 1/8000th, silent shutter, etc) but then I downgrade on weather sealing, EVF, IBIS and lose the ability to share batteries. Plus it weighs the same and isn't significantly smaller than the EM5.

As the price keeps falling on the GX7 I am tempted to own all 3 though.
