A Class 10 memory card will work just fine with the OM-D.

Although the quickest you can get, the better, as not all class 10 cards are the same - write speed is the most important thing, and you can get better performance in continuous shooting using a faster card with the OM-D.
edit: here we tested 3 "Class 10" cards:

I hope to have my OMD on Tuesday, menu's to be investigated.
I've used SanDisk for years. Never had a problem with them.
Paul wondered in an earlier posting of mine if the Lensbaby wide-angle attachment would work. I shot three images of the same scene this morning, all from the same distance of approx 3ft. All shots @ f/1.8, ISO 200; 1/20 sec
Straight shot with the 45mm.
The 1.6x telephoto lens:
And finally, the 0.6x wide-angle lens:
Not had a chance to try the lensbaby adapter, should turn that 45/90 into a 45/55.
Then there's adding the close-up filters to the end of the teleconverter - I've done that with the lensbaby and gotten some really close macro images. I figure I've got the attachments, might as well see where they can take me
Do you notice the funkiness in the upper rh corner?
45mm, f/4.0/stacked 4x close-up filter.
very nice control of depth of field Anne, a lovely picture
I've been playing with bigger birds in flight today on a short trip to Liberty's Raptor Centre at Ringwood.
My best results were with the 45 f1.8 and the larger / slower birds such as the Eagle Owl and Tawny Eagle.
The "Perlin" in flight (peregrine / merlin cross) defeated me using the 75-300, largely because I couldn't keep it in the view-finder - more practise needed!
I'm wondering about either the 75mm f1.8 or the promised 35-100 f2.8 Panny for this purpose as I don't think I'm going to make the 75-300 perform to the standard I want for this specific purpose (I no longer have any worries about the EM5 being capable with the right lens)
Here's a couple of examples from this morning
and the best I could do with the Perlin (its about 80% of the full image)

You will find that 75mm limiting Brian, and that 35-100 will be expensive, I`ve seen rumours of $1600 when its released.

Ouch - you know how to spoil my dreams Paul!
And I`ve just got rid of my 35-100 f2
In my last pics posted, they were all shot with the OM-D of course, and the Panasonic 100-300mm. All were handheld using the S1 Stab setting. Yesterday I shot 778 pics, and walked 3 hours with the camera, and the weight, and size of the camera had no bearing on how stiff and sore I was this morning.
I tried the 100-300mm on some BIF yesterday at 100-200mm, and I think with a bit of practise, it'll work, on the bigger birds at least.
That's the feeling I'm getting with the 75-300 Denny, up to 200 - 250mm it seems much faster and more accurate at AF'ing than it does at 250 - 300 'ish but I haven't done enough to confirm that yet, just a few quick rest shots
