I stopped myself from buying it, just because the GM5 was rumored to be released soon. Today, they made that announcement and the GM5 should be available in November. I'm even more interested because it is an improved model, which includes a hot shoe and an EVF.
Why is this important? I live in a very sunny part of California and using the rear display works fine in a store but not necessarily during a very sunny day. Trying to see my smartphone or tablet display is nearly impossible, though I've become very good at taking photos using muscle memory. Even if the EVF has the rainbow/tearing effect that plagues the GX7 for some people, it's better than not having an EVF at all.
The lack of a tiny built-in/inbuilt flash to make room for the EVF is okay, since they've included a hot shoe, so you can use the included flash or another, more high-powered model.
Being able to take 1080/60p video is a worthy enhancement, though I haven't seen anything about 25p or 50p. Those in PAL areas may be disappointed. It's possible the press releases I've seen were tailored for each country.
Of course, the GM5 kit is more expensive than the GM1 kit--US$899.99 vs $759.99, I believe was the price I was quoted at the store. (I have no desire for the 12-32mm lens but the pre-orders seem to be stuck with it. There are still no Panasonic/Leica 15mm f/1.7 kits.)
