Summary: In the age of the ubiquitous mobile-phone cameras, traditional camera manufacturers better give you a good reason to purchase and carry any additional photo equipment. Thankfully, Olympus delivers. The classic aesthetics is a true conversation starter.
Summary: This is a great camera. It's not state of the art from Olympus in 2013 but a big improvement over the E-P1. I bought the EVF to go with it and am very happy to use this as my travel camera as I wander around SE Asia for two months.
Summary: This camera is really good if you are looking for affordable, small camera with interchangeable lenses. I use it currently with Panasonic's 14mm Lumix lens and I love it. Much easier to carry everywhere and takes good photos even with the iAuto setting.
Summary: I bought this camera 3-4 years after it came out, so I was already buying in a technology "hole" compared to the latest models. The camera comes with no flash, mine came with no zoom (standard 17mm pancake), and is rather bulky and heavy for a non DSLR.
Summary: I bought this as a body only, a 2nd Micro 4/3 to backup my G5. I love it. It's small but feels substantial and it shares lenses with the G5. Now to tweak the settings a bit more and find a fast 17 or 20mm lens. It is destined to be my daily carry, in my jacket pocket or backpack.
Summary: A treasure camera. Who said that it is a camera for nascent. The quality of the images are extraordinary and the camera allows you to share legendary lenses. The price by now, allows you to get a powerful digital camera. I have amplified images of 40 x60 cm and the quality is incredible.
Summary: Great image quality, nice build quality and design, and way more flexibility than a regular point and shoot. It's way less conspicuous than a big canon or Nikon, and its a very powerful camera if you know what you're doing.
