About to swap my GX7 for a GM5: what will I miss?

Hi there

There's a great opportunity here in France for brand new GM5 12-32 kit for 399 Euros. While I do love my GX7, I've always kind of wished it were actually smaller. I'm thinking about getting the GM5 and selling the GX7 to cover part of the cost so my wife does not crucify me on the entrance door.

For those of you who have used both: what do you think I would miss from the GX7?

My usage is familly and street. The idea is to have a kind of "keyring" camera fitted with the 12-32 or the PL15 that I would ALWAYS have with me.

Also, will I get sharper images because of no shutter shock?

It's worth noting that I already have the EM1 as a main camera.
