Expectations exceeded. Not only got the controls I wanted, but with very few compromises given the size of the camera and sensor.
+ It works incredibly well in my hands. Customization allows me to have my preferred controls at my finger tips, literally. Even though I have large hands it fits well and I can shot fast. The automatic functions (focus, white balance, exposure) are quite accurate, even though I do override them from time to time. Finally, low light shooting works much better than I expected. When I kick up to 1600 or 3200 ISO, the noise seems to be primarily luminance and it cleans up easily in PS.

Excellent camera to grow into.
It's easy to use if you're a beginner, but has so many advanced features to discover as you advance in photography. The "image quality to size ratio" is great. The tilting screen and wifi are useful for exploring different ways to take photos. As you discover the wealth of customization, you'll be able to set it up exactly the way you like to shoot. Features like 'keystone', various types bracketing and in-camera HDR (to name a few), make this a true swiss-army knife of a camera. If you have manual-focus lenses and the right adapter, you'll appreciate the in-camera stabilization, electronic viewfinder and focus peaking. My favourite feature has to be the option for silent (full electronic) shutter. If you're coming from a DSLR background, conserving battery-life is something to get used to (I wish there was the option to map a button to turn on "sleep mode"). This is my favorite camera, and my 25mm 1.8 is usually mounted on it.

Lots of thumbs up.
I really enjoy this camera as it allowed me a new avenue back into photography. Had some really old cameras I wasn't using and love the features that are on this machine. Great pic quality too, very happy.

Impressive camera!
After years of lugging around DSLR's with heavy lenses and flashes, I've decided to lighten my load. This little camera is amazing, I've been quite impressed with it. The range of features should satisfy most photographers. It is very customizable, and makes commonly used adjustments very quick and convenient (i.e. Shutter speed, aperture, ISO, focus and drive modes). The ability to control flashes remotely is a big plus, as well as being able to control the camera from your phone. The image quality is fantastic, color reproduction is great, and noise is well controlled through the higher ISO values. I've not thoroughly tested ISO's of 6400 and above yet, but at 3200 noise is fairly low. Pictures are very usable at this level. About the only thing I could suggest, is a slight redesign of the directional button on the rear of the camera. I have fairly small hands, but I constantly find myself accidentally hitting the directional pad and changing my focus point, while attempting to hit the OK button in the center of the pad. It's not a major issue, but large handed shooters beware. Olympus did a fine job of making the rest of the controls very easy to use. This camera has exceeded my expectations, it's a fine replacement for my DSLR.

A Great Camera
Not the easiest camera to use but motivates you to dig deeper into settings and try to understand how all of this works. As a result plenty of option in this mid class camera. If you don't want to spend more than 1200 bucks, go with this - it uses same sensor as all top level OM-D. Great quality... feels very strong. The only thing that I don't understand - plastic battery lock ( haven't heard that somebody broke it - but still, doesn't feel very strong). If it is first 4/3 camera - KIT is an excellent choice.
