Who did you purchase it from?
Some Stores/Retailers test the camera's before selling/shipping.

Also some might be from the Olympus Testing before shipping

Re: Jpeps v Raw

Re: Time change after WiFi connection to iPad

Do you have Geo-Tagging or Image Tracking enabled?

I always keep my Camera on UK time.
