I found it to be a really useful and under-rated workhorse, with it being used as backup to my E-M1 or in its own right for street photography, travel landscapes etc. I tended to use it with the mZuiko 12-40mm Pro lens but as seen in the video link, it was also pressed into service for wild water canoeing action in the rain using a 4/3rds Sigma 70-200mm APO EXII lens!

Control of settings was a little more laborious than the bigger brother's hence use for street & landscape photography, but used with a wriststrap it was an easily held camera for candids etc.

And best of all ... I got it as a twin lens kit in a sale at Curry's as I wanted the wide angle lens for my lad, and 40-150mm R lens as my travel zoom, and in effect got the camera free!
Great camera if used to it best! Have fun.
