super lightweight m4/3 cameras - am i missing any?

i dislike my E-PM2, and i'd like to replace it with something super light.  i dislike the menus to change mode, that i have to use up/down buttons to change shutter speed or exposure compensation.  i dislike that when i preview  the pic using the preview button (it's fn), it shows me a bright, well exposed shot that's nothing like the pic i shoot.

i'd like a dial that controls shutter, aperture or exposure compensation. i'd like the screen to show the actual exposure and changes in exposure. i'd like decent high ISO performance.  i'd prefer a mode dial.  i'd like flexible program, so in program if i want a faster shutter speed, i just have to turn the dial, but that's not a must-have.  sure, an optional EVF would be nice, but again, not a must.  16mp would be nice.

E-PM2 - 269 g (0.59 lb / 9.49 oz)

GM1 - 274 g (0.60 lb / 9.60 oz)
GM5 - 211 g (0.47 lb / 7.44 oz)  (hard to find at a reasonable price)
GF7 - 266 g (0.59 lb / 9.38 oz)

i'm not overlooking the E-PLx cameras, although they do run a bit heavier, but still definitely lighter than my new a6100.  i need a lighter camera as a second, i like m4/3 and i have lenses.

am i forgetting a m4/3 camera that weighs in at or under 300 grams?
