Re: OM-D EM-5 has green pixel dot just off center of live view display and EVF??

It's a stuck green pixel. All sensors have them, even from the factory, but there is a 'map' that tells the camera which pixels to ignore. You're not seeing it in your downloaded shots because just about all RAW converters automatically detect stuck pixels and replace with data from surrounding pixels.

Good news is that you can update the map - on the OM-D, go to Gears menu > K (Utility) > Pixel Mapping - tap OK, then OK again to start. After the process completes, you shouldn't see the green pixel any more.
