Excerpt: My first m43 camera. After a months usage I am getting to grips with it and results are improving. The 12-32mm kit lens is excellent. Sharp edge to edge and the wide angle of 24mm is very useful for landscapes. I have been shooting Jpeg+Raw and find the jpeg engine to be very good.
Summary: Very nice camera! Its small and light, perfect to throw in my backpack, which is why i went with the gm-1. I wish i had went with the gm-5 to get a hot shoe for about the same size. For the price i dont think you can find a better camera.

Summary: I have owned this camera for nine months and have taken approximately 4000 shots with it. It has become my go-to camera on most outings, and is with me much more often than my beloved Nikon SLR. Picture quality, I feel, is excellent, even in low light situations!
Great camera, but may be too small for larger hands

Summary: Camera is great. The lens broke almost immediately, wouldn't open anymore. Sent it back, they sent me a new one. It worked for 1 day, then the same thing happened. When I called Fumie, they said "I dunno what to tell ya - kit lenses are kinda get what you pay for.
Summary: Great small camera with a lot of punch! The size for me is perfect. I was looking for a small travel camera with really good image quality. With the included kit lens, you get a super portable, small, lightweight camera that can produce very nice photos.
Terrific Photographs from a very Small Camera but buy the kit lens package

Summary: The Panasonic DMC-GM1 is a really small camera that is capable of taking professional quality photographs in almost all lighting conditions. However, I strongly suggest purchasing the kit version with the 12-32mm lens. Although any micro 4/3 lens will work (i.e.
