    I bought a new E-M1 about 4 months ago and have shot with it maybe 5 times as it's my backup to full frame. I had an issue where it locked up while shooting a few times and had to power on/off to get it working again. I updated to the latest firmware but have only done a few shots since so hopefully that resolved it. My biggest concern is while I was in the menu doing some wireless flash settings it froze up completely and was stuck on the menu option and I couldn't do anything. I powered on/off but the menu still stayed on the lcd and the only way I could get out of it was to pop the battery. This really worries me and thinking I should send it in for service. Has anyone else had this happen? If it helps the battery was almost at full charge. I have never had issues before with any camera but this really concerns me.

    Mine locked up once and have taken a lot of pictures since purchased new. I don't worry about it.

    No lock ups, but my lever doesn't work. Cant bear to part with the camera though, so will probably put up with it.

    What memory card are you using? I had similar issues with another camera some time ago and it was a memory card causing the lockup.
