I'm really pleased I got mine (Stylus 1) when I did (Christmas 2013). I was scared off getting the E-M1 in Oct 2013 while there were fires threatening (& had taken 100's of houses) when the supplier emailed me to say mine had come in. I knocked it back then but as the fires were controlled & put out, nearer to Christmas I discovered the Stylus 1 & thought it would fill a great hole in my photography use & it does. Of course, I ended up buying the E-M1 six months later as well. The later firmware 2.0 update for the Stylus 1 has made it even better too.
I fiddle with violins (when I'm not fiddling with a camera).
