GX-7 is 320 shots if anyone is counting. The batteries are small like the K-50/K-70 series uses not large like the K-3, K-1, etc.

The GX-1 is discontinued. I bought mine used. I don't recommend it over the choices you mention unless Size is absolutely needed. There are newer smaller cameras but few with the controls and capability - the sensor is long in the tooth and the files are not as clean as I would like. Still... not bad overall for a really light and small carry option.

Since I have the GX-7 back from my dad I don't use the GX-1 much anymore. It's such a minor jump in size - granted the thickness is more of an issue.

In theory the EM-10-MKIII is much better in this respect. But there are tradeoffs - loss of functionality with the mk iii vs. mk ii. See here for one opinion on the comparison of the two cameras and who should buy which: Olympus OM-D E-M10 Mark II vs OM-D E-M10 Mark III – The complete comparison (more supporting info in the article - this links to the conclusion.

I'm personally in the camp of the Panasonic m43 rangefinder style cameras as a better replacement for the GR - but the A6000 is a nice camera as well. The question is really what is the purpose of the camera. I like using my m43 as an alternative to carrying a cell phone or an APSC DSLR - the happy middle ground. I have a GX-1 and a GX-7. The GX-1 plus a pancake is quite small - not LX-7 small (not as thin) but very small. The GX-85 or the GX-7 might fit your needs.

Here's a set of them with the Panny 14mm f/2.5 which I think is the smallest thinnest lens available for the platform other than the body cap lenses.
