We recently published our full review of the Panasonic Lumix GM1, and thought it would be interesting to see how small the Panasonic Lumix GM1 is when used with a number of different lenses:

Panasonic Lumix GM1 Black (4)

The Panasonic Lumix GM1 is an extremely compact camera when used with the new 12-32mm lens designed for the camera - this sits flush with the lens mount, however, many Micro Four Thirds lenses are larger than this with a wider diameter, this causes the bottom of the camera to be higher than the lens, as you can see in the photo below:

Panasonic Lumix GM1 20mm Lens
The Panasonic Lumix GM1 in black matches the Panasonic Lumix G 20mm f/1.7 ASPH. II lens colour perfectly. 

Panasonic Lumix GM1 With 25mm Leica Lens
Panasonic Lumix GM1 with Leica 25mm f/1.4 ASPH Lens - The larger the lens, the more difficult it is for the camera to sit comfortably on a flat surface. 

Panasonic Lumix GM1 With Olympus 9 18mm Lens
Panasonic Lumix GM1 with Olympus 9-18mm f/4-5.6 Lens - The 9-18mm lens was one of the first collapsable lenses after the 14-42mm kit lens from Olympus, and fits extremely well with this compact camera. 

Panasonic Lumix GM1 With Olympus 9 18mm Lens Extended
Put the Olympus M.Zuiko 9-18mm lens on the GM1, and the lens looks like it was designed to be as small as possible, fitting very neatly.

Panasonic Lumix GM1 With 12mm Lomography Lens
The Lomography Micro Four Thirds Experimental lens kit is another set of lenses that fits very neatly on the compact Panasonic Lumix GM1.

Panasonic Lumix GM1 15mm Cookie Lens
The Olympus 15mm f/8 Cookie / Body Cap Lens (with f/2 mod) is one of the smallest Micro Four Thrids lenses available, with just the PinWide being smaller than it. 

Panasonic Lumix GM1 With Voigtlander 42 5 Mm Lens 2
The Voigtlander 42.5mm f/0.95 fits quite nicely on the GM1, and focus peaking will help with manual focusing of this lens.

Panasonic Lumix GM1 With Olympus 75 300mm II Lens
The Olympus 75-300mm f/4.8-6.7 II Lens is one of the largest Micro Four Thirds lenses available (at the time of writing), and dwarfs the GM1, however it does provide the equivalent of 150-600mm telephoto reach, in a lens and camera combination much smaller than would be possible with a traditional Digital SLR.
