There no doubt that this is a very good camera.

I heard this model esp. with the motorised 14-42mm EZ lens tends to suck a lot of power from the battery hence one has to change battery MORE often than the previous Olympus models... Is this true?

While I agree that the battery life could be better (again especially using the EZ lens), I have had no issues with it. Get over 200 shots per battery - and that is doing a lot of zooming and using the LCD to check the shots - but I always carry an extra battery and generally don't use the battery till the end anyways.
