Are there any "non-obvious" issues with the first Olympus E-M1?

Let me explain.

I know that the first version doesnt have a lot of features compared to the mark 2, including - but not limited to - 4k video. But after checking the specs online, it's still a very very capable camera.

Having said that, what is your experience with this camera? Actually, to be clearer - I was able to find some reviews online that say that EVF is prone to spots that remain on the screen.

Is there anything else I am missing? Is the phase detection not as good as promised? Is the 5 axis stabilization worse than, let's say, the E-M10 mark 2? I am just curious before I consider it, and I end up finding a "surprise" that ends up being an already known issue.
