OM to m43 adapter allows me to use my old manual focus 50mm f/1.8 lens. I can confirm my focus by magifying the live view and now I have the perfect portrait lens with a large aperture giving me beautiful images. I shoot mostly in Shutter/Aperture Priority or Full Manual. I rarely use the zoom and prefer the view of the 14mm. I like street shooting in available light. At night I set the ISO to 3200. Yes, there is noise but, once I convert to black & white and add a little grain the final image looks good. I prefer the JPG results from the camera versus the RAW to JPG I get in Photoshop. RAW gives me more flexibility to correct the chromatic abberation purple fringing I get on the edges of the frame. I have no interest in the video functions nor the Art/Scene/Program Modes. The menu navigation needs improvement because there are too many steps to reach some function but, with S/A/M modes you can bypass the menu system and access the control you need with the OK and Menu buttons. Would like it if Olympus would have a lens hood for the 14-42 kit lens. There are very few third party hoods available. Battery life is poor. Need to order another battery. I don't use the flash and expect battery life to be worse if the flash is used.

Exactly what I wanted!
I got this camera as an upgrade from a point and shoot. I didn't want the bulkiness of a typical dslr, but I wanted to up the quality of my pictures. I loved the retro styling of the camera itself and after researching and reading reviews, I felt vindicated enough to buy it. I've yet to use it to it's full potential, but I've been having a lot of fun with it and get compliments everywhere I go.

Feature-rich, but........
Camera came with 14-42 zoom lens but I wish it had a little more range on the telephoto end. Don't like the lens lockdown feature or the placement of the video button (too easy to activate when just handling the camera). Am still learning a lot of the nuances of the camera to get the kind of printable images I'm looking for. I do like the quality and feel and with all the features, it's hard not to be pleased with this camera. Will be looking to add a telephoto lens when they become more affordable.

So Easy Even a Troglodyte Can Use It
This was my first foray into the DSLR world. I found that I could take excellent pictures without any trouble. I still have much to learn to move from 'snapshots' to real 'art' photography.
