Now an official Olympus user.
Yesterday I bought the OM-D E-M5 with the kit lens, Olympus 60mm f2.8 M.ZUIKO Digital ED, Olympus FL-600R Wireless Flash and a nice Manfrotto 732CY M-& Carbon Fibre with A3RC1 3-Way Head.
Still got to get a 75-300mm and a nice fast prime.
I think it will be a while before I will get to set the camera up the way I want so don't expect any photos too soon.
I was shocked when I asked in the shop about a remote shutter release for the camera. First they didn't have one and then they looked up the price, over 60.
Right, back to the manual.

Well done!:D

I'm sure you'll find it very good. Yes you will need a little while to get it set up as it's so customisable.

Third party remote releases such as this one http://www.7dayshop.com/7dayshop-wired-remote-switch-shutter-release-cord-for-olympus-ref-7dsmqs8?backUrl=L2NhdGFsb2dzZWFyY2gvcmVzdWx0Lz9xPX JlbW work perfectly well.

Great news David. I'm sure it won't be too long before you're up and running!
