Everything seems well covered. Want to add I think Oly's approach to weatherproof controls lends to the indistinct feel on both models, but the very small E-M5 buttons accentuate the issue. Compared to, say, the E-30 with its very concise tactile feedback, the E-5 and E-M5 buttons often require me to look at the display to verify the command. Certainly an area they could improve; I just don't know what the technical options are.

There aren't any lenses I won't use on the E-M5, but in practice only a few I use frequently.
