Looking forward to having lots of Oly fun!
I went from Canon 5D11 to em 1. Still just camera . Keep it all simple as possible works for me. The only MySet is a very auto thing so I can get most photos (I do) by moving the dial to 'iauto' (had to look that up lol)
Auto WB/f8/raw/A/auto ISO/multi pattern metering/histogram on in viewfinder/plus a few other things (??)
Aperture on front dial/Ex Compo on back dial
ISO on the FN2 button
WB on the Fn1 button
That makes it easy and easy to make a adjustments. Camera is on that MySet most of the time

this is handy when setting http://www.biofos.com/mft/omd_em1_settings.html
There are 1,000,000 plus plus combos available

Most of those were given to me by members of this forum. Honestly; I would have been lost without that help I have received from so many here who know so much more than I do.

I also suggest LR; I thought I knew it all until I got onto this mob http://www.lightroomforums.net/forum.php

Enjoy your photography (again)
