Summary: Very happy with this camera, and at half the price of the US version. The price difference means giving up the warranty and for some people it's worth it, for me a 1 yr warranty was not worth the extra cost. All the reviews for the US version apply to this one, it's the exact same item. Even though it was shipped from Japan, delivery was only a few days longer than if it were domestically shipped.

Summary: Fast service and great price, the camera however looks great it's well build, controls are just on the right places, photos not as good as the OMD-5 since I don't have anything else to compare to. I will be using as a point and shoot so that's fine for me.
Summary: I love the images of this camera and its size. If I had one complaint it would be the video mode is only so-so and the charger is stupid (proprietary cable instead of USB or a dedicated charger) so I guess two complaints.
Pocket Sized Convenience - DSLR Features and Images
12 May 2014
Summary: My criteria for a new camera was simple, it had to fit in my pocket and had to have functions for low light pictures. It also had to have the badge of a camera manufacturer and not an electronics manufacturer. This camera at its regular price is worth the money and purchased as a special it becomes a steal! Battery life is great at and I wish I hadn't purchased two extra batteries, one would be plenty.
Summary: Great basic camera that also has manual settings as you learn more. I would read the manual soon after you buy the camera to get the most out of it. Also Olympus has great on line tips. I am a basic camera user. The one extra I would read first is how to use the panoramic feature and practice before you need to use it on a vacation.
