snack: My take is that the camera is so good they really had to dig deep to find something negative to say. This thing feels and operates superbly.

I have zero problems looking through the EVF in bright light. It looks nice and clear to me. I've also made myself dizzy turning my head back & forth rapidly to duplicate this "rainbow" effect...nothing.

Every control falls naturally and logically under your fingertips.

Most of the negative remarks have to do with operating the camera at its extremes.

I think the EM1 deserves a higher grade just for it's build. But other than that, I can't see what the EM1 does better.

True, bluevellet...I didn't think of that.

I'll give you that the EM1 EVF is "bigger"...but not really any sharper or cleaner based on my side by side comparison. However, yes, bigger is nicer.

Ibis in video...only partially annoying since you can use lenses that have it built in...and should be a firmware fix.

Mic jack...true...but most serious video shooters will use a separate audio recording system. And the poor EM1 video codec sort of cancels out the mic option.

Weather sealed...true again, but most lenses are not. Still, a feather in the EM1 cap.

Better continuous focusing...that's more dependent on lens choice and lighting conditions.

Shoot faster...not as fast as the electronic shutter of the GX7.

4/3 lenses...ok, but nothing major here. Why would you want to use them?

Is anyone having problems viewing the sample images using the "slide show" option?

The page never loads for me>

snack: Eric Kim is an absolute joke as a street photographer. He has no clue what the genre is about. Pretty lame to see this on this site.

Unfortunately, taking photos of "things in the street" isn't street photography...it's merely taking photos of things in the street. Yeah, he's great at that.

Why did they bother? This camera is DOA.
