Summary: I was hoping for a camera that takes extraordinary pictures, but it is pretty much just like any other ordinary camera. Don't get me wrong, it is a nice camera, but maybe a less expensive one would work just as well. It snaps pictures with ease and is very fast and I like the compact feel of it. But it is VERY complicated and there is no way I would ever learn all there is to learn on this. It boggles my mind. The camera case is very nice and adequate to hold everything.
Summary: The camera is okay if you're only interested in the compact system. It is way too tiny and lightweight to use with Olympus's higher quality e-series lenses. I returned it because it was not going to meet my needs.

Summary: Camera is good, but touch screen is not as useful as it should be. No pinch to zoom is a big disappointment. Plus, touch screen is not sensitive enough and overall implementation leaves much more to be desired. No compare to Canon EOS 650/700D with its excellent touch screen functionality.
Summary: So this is not an amazing great deal, but you do save some money. As of today the camera body by itself is $700, the 14-42mm EX lens is $300, the 40-150mm ED lens is about $150, the SD card is about $25, the tri pod is about $10, the HDMI cable is about $4, the SD card case is about $8, the card reader is $6, the generic software is unknown, the generic screen protectors are likely around $3, the cleaning kit is $7, the case is $8, both filters are about $10, from...
Summary: (Purchase in September at higher price, same bundle minus Lightroom 5) Overall I'm happy with my purchase, although the set is not as well put together as it could be, hence only 3 stars. 1. it wasn't really clear that this is the NEW OM-D10 with the OLD 14-42mm Lens! The new lens would be considerably smaller.
Excerpt: When I first got hold of the camera I was so disappointed with the soft IQ that I returned the first body as defective. The second was no better and I was about to return that copy when new firmware was produced dealing with shutter shock. Immediately all of my lenses looked better and my life with the E-M10 began but always using the electronic shutter below 1/320sec and shutter lag short.
