I am about to retire my panasonic gx1. I like it because it is small tough and capable. Is there a good replacement and if so what is a good replacement?

It depends.

What is it about the GX1 that you like?

  • The most obvious replacement is the GX9. It is better than the GX1 in almost every possible way, except that it is larger.
  • If you want smaller, then you have to go back to the 16mp sensor, and find a used GM1 or GM5 ...
  • ... or you can compromise a bit and get a GF10, which is still the 16mp sensor, but relatively newer and not quite as small as the GM1 (but it does have a built in flash).
  • Or the relatively compact EP7 from Oly, which has the 20mp sensor but no EVF.
  • Or the relatively compact EM5iii from Oly, which is the smallest m43 camera with PDAF.

So, if you like having an EVF, you have the older GM5, the newer GX9, and the Oly EM5iii to consider.

If size is super important, then the GM1, GM5, and GF10 are contenders.

And so on.
