From Alexandria, VA last weekend, GM1+Olympus 25mm 1.8
You have captured some interesting moments there.
Nice set of pictures... How's the performance of the Oly 25 on the GM1? Easy handling?

Thanks. I like the size of the combo, easily coat/jacket pocketable. The lens is nice and has fast af like the other Oly 1.8 lenses. I tried rx1 grip w/ gm1 and it helped some of the handling issues eg reduced non-intentional touch screen changes though the grip is a little bigger for the gm1. When I used gm1 w/ 45mm for Chinese new year shots, my hand get tired after a while since there is not much to hold onto it and these lenses are heavier then the gm1 kit lens, so grip helps. The celebration was in the mall and I shot wide open and caught even action shots so gm1 af is very fast. Only problem I have w/ gm1 is the changing of aperture w/ rear wheel as it easily goes to WB or the other options. I think Canon S90 had a similar problem and then they fixed it w/ S95.
