Reading all the forum posts, you'd think the OM-D was perfection personified. After a week of use, I see some basic issues that make the camera less than perfect for me. By posting them here, I'm hoping to elicit responses how you have adapted or solved them. So this is not a slam of the OM-D, but an attempt learn ways around what I think are equipment issues.

Ergonomic: I always finger dangle the camera and use a wrist strap. So I bought the grip, never use the battery part, just the grip itself. But every time I want to charge the battery I have to remove the grip so I can open the battery compartment.

Flash: I seldom use the builtin flash, but when I do it is nice to just pop it up. Not remove three covers and hope not to lose them.

Controls: Compared to my GH2, camera setup is tedious. For example, if I want to use bracketing, it takes something like 6 button presses. Even using a MySet, it still requires you to delve into the menus. On my GH2, just slide the lever from single to bracket and back.

Well said. These are some of the main reasons why I sold it and go to Fuji.
