The bit rate is pretty bad meaning any large amount of movement on the screen and the image breaks up, and there is no 24P mode for get a film-like look and no 60P for action, but most don't need those.

24P not only for "film-like look" - it's the only way to distribute 1080p on Blu-ray without resorting to some funky scan conversion.

Also, projecting onto a 92" screen I can see digital artifacts when there is a lot of detail and or motion in the shot. The EM-1 is a bit better in that regard than the EM-5, but still noticeable. If only it were possible that a firmware update could enable 24P and a higher data rate on my EM-1... Oh, well - there is always the Pana GH4.
