Excerpt: I bought my E-M1 mostly for travel. I love how compact it is, the quick focus, ease in tailoring settings to suit my needs and the fact that it is very well made. My only complaint are the manuals which are several levels below the quality of the camera itself!
Pros: Easy to Use, Great Resolution, Large Clear LCD, Small / Compact
Excerpt: I have been using Nikon D7000 with various lenses for some time now. Though the quality of pictures are superb, the weight and handling of the camera was becoming a problem specially with zoom lenses. It was taking a toll on my back.
Pros: Easy to Use, Fast Shutter Speed, Large Clear LCD, Small / Compact
Excerpt: Great IQ, Great ergonomics and controls and really nice lenses. I want to love this camera but returned 2 of them due to defects. I also have an EM-5 with various problems. Olympus needs to improve on QC or perhaps bring the manufacturing to Japan! Cannot recommend.
Summary: Damn near perfect camera. Absolutely love it. Does more than I could ever imagine. I've had everything from an Olympus E1, E3, E30, E600, E500, EP1, EM5, EPM2 etc ....and this is the best camera yet.
Excerpt: Really good product and very advanced. The Mk 2 when it comes really should have an input guard (most cameras seem not to have them but they are really useful in limiting damage to the camera's female connection.
Pros: Easy to Use, Excellent Stableization, Fast Shutter Speed, Great Resolution, Great Zoom, Large Clear LCD, Small / Compact, Stills' Hdr
I figured at worst if I have to send in for a repair ...

Summary: As advertise well packaged and arrived in a week. No Warranty though but I was willing to take that risk to save $500.00. I figured at worst if I have to send in for a repair I'd still be money ahead.
Summary: I returned my copy of the E-M1 because the autofocus would not give a correct focus when a circular polarizer (and I tried two different brands of polarizers) was mounted on either of the two 14-42 kit lenses that I have, though the E-M1 did autofocus properly without a polarizer on these lenses.
