The GM1 is a really nice camera, I owned one for a little while but found a good deal on a GM5 and bought that instead - that was 4/5 years ago. The GM5 has a very tiny but usable EVF, but more so, it has a substantial-for-its-size thumb rest on the back, making it much less difficult to juggle. Plus a hot shoe, which I was really disappointed that the GM1 skimped on. But that said, the GM1 can do a lot. It's a sleeper, and is very well made.A warning or the Zero sum game, If you sell of some bicycle parts, consisting mostly of a NOS titaninum bottle cage that a fellow dearly wants for a high-end retro MTB build, dont go onto the local classified and find a GM1 bought new in 2019 a 20 minutes drive away, for about the same sum as the bike parts brought, then this happens:

The GX880 is rather chunky beside it.
1639 shutter actuations, flash fired 14 times, and it came with a OEM handgrip in black, all for the princely sum of approximately 150 bucks.
Would have preferred a black one, but for that price, I live well with the silver. Mostly facinated by the size of it, it is proper tiny, the only thing left now, is a GM5 if I manage to get hold of one. Other than that, I am content, and will do a bit of further spring cleaning of gear as well.
