Excerpt: I ordered this camera because of the great reviews it got. Unfortunately, I noticed immediately that the touch screen malfunctioned, turning on and off at ramdon all the time. Very annoying. So I exchanged it. The second camera I tried worked.
Summary: Being used to a Pentax K-3 DSLR, using this smaller camera at first was very cumbersome using the complicated menu, and then trying to figure out what was going on by following the cryptic manual. Buy using a plethora of videos on YouTube, however, I was able to make some headway!
This could be a fantastic camera with the right lens

Summary: This could be a fantastic camera with the right lens. It's very limited out of the box. The electronic zoom is fairly slow...slower than advertised so you have to be pretty patient. I'm going to invest in a lens that costs almost as much as the camera and see if that makes a difference.
Excerpt: After I got the battery all charged up, I tried to operate the camera. It made a faint clicking sound, the monitor turned a very dark shade of blue-gray, and then the camera shut itself off within 4 seconds.
Good camera. More than I wanted to pay for its capabilities.

Summary: This is a fine little camera that I was eager to get. After realizing that what I wanted was a small travel camera with a fairly wide-ranging lens, the combination of camera body and 14-150mm lens came to more than $1000.
A great camera, a good value, but the accessories are poor quality

Summary: The price point on this package makes it very attractive. At a local camera store you will pay nearly the same price for simply the camera and the lens. Excluding the camera and lens, I largely bought this package because it included the memory card and camera bag.
Summary: I was disappointed with this camera and returned it. Why do I give it even three stars? Because I was comparing its function to my Lumix GX7 and found it wanting in snappy performance. I wanted a second body for my micro 4/3 system, but this isn't it.
I had big expectations, maybe, that is why I'm disappointed

Summary: I'm far from an expert;..... but I has preparing for a wonderful time in Italy, when I realise I need a camera that makes almost all the job for me, specially videos, with no need for extra equipment.
Summary: I am searching for a lightweight replacement for my beloved Canon T3i + Sigma 18-250mm lens when traveling. Schlepping 39 ounces all day gives me a terrible backache. I bought an OM-D E-M10 with both the 14-42 and 40-150 kit lenses from Best Buy.
Pros: Bright, large, eye level electronic finder. SHARP images. FAST
Cons: Physical design of thumb rest and lower right rear corner of camera body.
Summary: I really wanted to like this camera. While the build quality is excellent, there are too many quirks with the menu system and too many missed/out of focus pictures, especially indoor pictures. When it does focus, the pictures are beautiful. The hissing sound from the IBIS is irritating.
