What I want

I remember when the NEX series came out and all of the comments on how ugly it was. You are missing out the OMD EM-5 is the best mirrorless camera hands down. It's worth it just for the focusing.

Is this comment meant for me?

I've had three extended shooting sessions with the EM5. I love its feature set, but each time I've shot with it I've come away with the impression that Oly sacrificed its handling to make it look cool. Also, the lack of a built-in flash is a deal-breaker for me.

I can understand why other people like the camera, but it's not for me and I certainly don't feel like I'm "missing out".

I'm currently using an E-P3 with the optional large grip and a "Thumbs Up" style thumb attachment.

I'll upgrade it when Oly brings out a top-range camera with great handling, 5-way IBIS, flip-out screen, built-in flash and preferably an EVF.

I do like the handling on the Panny SLR-styled cameras, but prefer Olympus for the new IBIS system and colour palette.
