Re: E-M1X thoughts and excellent Dave Etchells video

Having the portrait grip included is not an issue for me, although I could use the E-M1 Mk II for those occasions for small & compact, without a grip (but with an Arca-Swiss baseplate). Essentially, using this E-M1X camera means you’re likely to have two or three lenses with it & so a suitable bag would be used whereas the former (with a single lens) can be taken with something much smaller, but one could compliment the other depending on the occasion.

I’m going for a hands on this Thursday so maybe I’ll change my mind or I’ll be overcome with GAS.
I fiddle with violins (when I'm not fiddling with a camera).
