I have been an Olympus user for many years, and will continue to be so. This camera caught my interest when it was announced last fall, as it had appealing as it was geared to the stills shooter. I acquired the camera last month, and also purchased the 8-18, 12-60 and 100-400 Panasonic lenses. Just recently I purchased the grip as well. This camera, with or without the grip, fits very comfortably in the hand (I do still need to get a wrist strap). I find I have a good deal to learn about this camera and how to use it, but that means I have the learning to do, and not the body. The viewfinder, which I almost always use, takes some getting used to, though I suspect that is the magnification, which can be scaled back. The images I have seen from others, and the ones I have shot myself have been most pleasing, and I have yet to venture beyond trying out the basics. This camera is a solid addition to the micro four thirds family of offerings.
