Seriously, though (in order of disappointment)…

1. Miss IBIS (from Olympus cameras)

2. Battery life

3. NR control (still NR is used even when NR is set at -5 maximum reduction)

4. Egonomics could be better (e.g small thumb grip on the back)

5. No sweep panoramic mode

However, saying that, it is a fantastic compact camera! Really impressed with the AF, customisation ability, menu system, ISO ability, silent mode, and improved colour of its jpeg engine (got rid of a GX1 because of that).

One other thing I love and find handy about it is the x3 shot timer mode. I really missed this feature from a Nikon D90 I owned before where the self-timer could take multiple shots in sequence. This camera can take three in a sequence which is great for group shots (where someone is bound to have closed eyes), so you have a selection to choose from.
