Oly did say that this is not the 'PRO' OMD

For it's price point I'd say the build quality is great, but not on the same level as the E3/5 which are damn near indestructible.

I'm sure the new pro OMD will have the same level of indestructibleness.

I've mounted my 300/2.8 on the EM5 and it feels strong and secure even with that weight - although I wouldn't hold the combination with just the camera only.

Yes, the AF is unusable for the most part. My best focusing 4/3 lens on the OMD is the 12-60 - which I use for landscapes. Just wish it had focus peaking.
