Long time Canon user here who a while back was shown a Club members Olympus camera, a model I quite fancied, but going through the menu really put me off as it seemed so complicated.
Anyway on a recent trip to the Norwegian Fjords I bumped into another Club member with her EM1 MK2 (coincidence or fate!) over the coarse of the trip I became convinced that this is the direction I wanted to take.
Upon returning I found Olympus were plugging a discount, an offer I took up ordering an EM1 MK3, the 12-100 f4 lens wasn't in stock so have ordered elsewhere.
The body arrived quickly as did the memory cards, new filter and wriststrap - but I haven't got the lens! Doing my head in!
Must say been really impressed with the build quality of the new body as I have had the time to study it!

I got an E-M1ii from MPB about a month ago and am very pleased with it and the controls layout, much more comfortable to hold than my E-M5ii, but that might have been better with a grip. I have the 12-40 f2.8 which is a great lens, my others are non pro (9-18mm, 75-300mm, 45mm f1.8, and Lumix 45-150, 12-32).

Best of luck with your new camera and lens.

A good sized camera!
Had mine now for 3 months am really pleased with the handling and general operation, everything just feels right.
The IBIS works well with longer exposures coming out well coupled with the lens stabilisation a second is quite achievable.
Great to go out and about with just a camera and lens!

I moved from Nikon to a used EM1 with an EM10mk2 as backup a few years ago and not looked back.
Brilliant cameras and lenses (the 60mm macro is outstanding).
The image stabilisation means that all my wildlife macro`s are now hand held.
The menus are a bit confusing at first but you soon get the hang of them.

Glad I'm not the only one that loves them!
Really enjoying mine and spent time setting it up how I liked and then decided to set the C1 - 4 options but somehow I reset 'all' camera settings!
Being more familiar with the menu meant I had it set up reasonably quickly.
Now I have all camera setting saved to PC Workspace and OI Share so should I do it again it should be a fairly painless reset!
How many camera's allow you to store settings - great idea.
