The more I use it, the more I like it
As an original E-M5 owner, I eagerly awaited this camera for a long time. (Full disclosure: I ended up buying a Panasonic GX85 last year to tide me over.) I thought the price was overly expensive at product launch, but I quickly clicked "Buy" when the price went down $200. I'll have to admit, I was not that impressed when I first received this camera. It felt a bit too "light" and plasticky. Even more so than my GX85 in my opinion. I so loved the metal finish of my E-M5 and E-P1. But other forum members urged me to be patient and eventually you won't even notice the plastic construction. After about a month, I agree! The camera feels light and sturdy, and looks absolutely gorgeous. The enhanced viewfinder encourages me to bring the camera to my eye again (instead of using the LCD monitor). I took a few night photos handheld at 1/2s and was shocked to see that they were more clear than ones taken at 1/10s! (due to the lower ISO) Olympus really has thought of virtually everything for this camera. Its ergonomics is just about perfect for a small camera. The buttons have a satisfying 'click', even with the weather sealing (I always thought my E-M5 buttons were mushy). The improved OLED viewfinder means I could use it outdoors while wearing polarized sunglasses (my biggest pet peeve with the older E-M5). This camera is just a pleasure to use!

I would recomend this camera to anybody who is serious about photography.
I love this camera and its ease of use, It's a huge upgrade over my other cameras witch include the Evolt E-510, the SP-810UZ & the SP-500UZ. I really like the high resolution and the high dynamic range shooting modes but my favorite is the star trail shooting mode that actually records ands stacks the images in camera eliminating the need for complicated post processing on a computer with expensive software. I have only had this camera for about two weeks so I am still learning and experimenting but so far I am thrilled with the results.

All I need is here
I had the original OMD EM5 for a long time (still working) and waited with an upgrade until the end of 2018, then lost patience and bought EM5 Mark II, which provides a noticeably better pictures in challenging conditions. I was not going to buy Mark III so soon but could not resist when the price dropped. Again, a noticeably better sensor. I haven't had time to do a lot of shooting yet, but am confident I have made the right choice. One thing I am still trying to figure out is the benefit of the USB charging if I cannot use a regular 5V USB power supply. Maybe I'll publish this as a question here. There is nothing wrong with having two cameras: this way, you don't need to change those excellent 12-40mm and 40-150mm f/2.8 Pro lenses which cover a very useful range extremely well. And, if something goes wrong with one camera you have another one as a backup ;-)

Great features in a compact, lightweight body!
I moved up from my E-M5 MarkII. I wear glasses and larger eyepiece was important to me. Also shoot lots of wildlife so better focusing was a big plus. I also like that the ergomomics, size and weight were slightly improved. I was concerned about the composite construction but it feels solid and well built. Overall, I am very happy with the camera!
