Summary: you save hundreds of dollars for this camera, get the quality of one of the best camera yet for pictures and videos, very user friendly, fun to play with, long battery life, produce vivid clarity on your pictures. its worth every dime u spend. I can say more about this camera then I can write, believe me. buy it.
Summary: I love this camera! The only "issue" is the silver paint around the shoot button wears easily. I haven't given my camera that much use and it's wearing a little. Oh well, aesthetics isn't the most important part, it's very functional!

Summary: asking why to review an old equipment is probably a good way to start since there are already a new version of it (e-pm2) and is probably going to start to get hard to buy one the thing is: is an awesome camera i bought together with an panasonic lx7 and needs to say that although i like the lx7 i pretty much need to force myself to use it instead of the olympus i got it refurbished (the warranty was the same standard 1 year) and in the purple version (good for street...
Easy to use, after you read the instructions a couple times

Summary: Easy to use as a beginner right out the box. Set everything to Auto and you can take good pictures of still life and non action portraits. With a little reading, you can take some really good Action/Sports shots. With alot of reading, you can take GREAT shots. When you want to play around with all the filters, it is a breeze to scroll thru them all. I tend to use a tripod and take a pic, then scroll to the next filter and do it over and over until I have done them all.
Summary: Bought this because the price was down to an incredibly affordable level, and I couldn't resist but to get one just so I could try it out and was thinking of returning if I was going to end up not liking it. Turned out quite the opposite, I like it, a lot ! At first, reviews all over the web mentioned something about the indepth menu system where you can do a ton of settings even to the extend that some cannot be found on an APSC DSLR, but I couldn't find it.
Great oportunity, this one. Extremely low price!!!

Summary: A multitude of functions and Olympus quality for an extremely low price (just 175$, including the lens)!!! I was looking (and still am) for a much shorter macro distance (in the range of 1cm, whereas this has like 20cm), for a camera to be used underwater (with a case of course), but with this price ... I had to buy that ...
Summary: Great little camera. Still not quite pocketable unless you have large jacket pockets. But the small size is still worth it for backpacking or traveling. Easy as a point and shoot but you can fidget with the controls to get a better image quality.
