    I have been debating E-M5 vs. E-M10, and finally pulled the trigger on the later one. So I am a new E-M10 owner.
    My previous camera was a GX1, which I still like a lot.

    The Oly menu is quite complex, and it will take some time to get used to it. But so far, so good.
    I did a search, but could not find any info on this. Is there a way to tell the operation hours of the camera (how long has it been turned on)? Maybe a way to get total exposure count on it?

    Turn Camera OFF
    Hold down MENU button and turn ON the camera
    Release MENU button and press MENU again to get to Menus
    Go to LCD Brightness Menu, that's in Spanner Menu and third item down.
    Press RIGHT to show screen adjusters
    Press INFO and then press OK and on my E-M5 this shows on screen....
    OLYMPUS E-M5 0A 01 01 01
    ► Press in sequence UP/DOWN/LEFT/RIGHT/SHUTTER/UP and Page 1 info appears

    ► Variously press RIGHT for Page 2, DOWN for Page 3, LEFT for Page 4 and UP again to get Page 1

    What we are looking for is the information on Page 2
    R 000091 [total shutter actuation count]
    S 000011 [shot count with flash]
    C 000000
    U 000018 [turn on count which is ultrasonic wave cleaner count]
    V 000000

    B 000101 [seems to be total number of times shutter button is fully pressed for any reason]
    L 000000

    On Page 4 is D: damage code log, mine shows blank and that is good.
