When I did get it, I found a lot of stuff I didn't like about the camera like the noisy images (compared to my APS-C DSLR) and really loud shutter. IQ wise, the Olympus E-M5 mkI was a a match for my DSLR (7D1) but in a much smaller size. Also the primes could be shot wide open and sharp across the frame. The IBIS was amazingly effective so often that with the fast lens actually pulled ahead. The only thing missing was the CAF which I found acceptable with the E-M1 mkII.
