Plus, I don't need to worry so much about breaking it ;)

Still using an EM5, got for €350 couple a years ago and brought back the fun in photography. I highly prefer using it with the grip and I find the 2 dials turn way to easily. But apart from these 2 remarks, I'll use it until it breaks...

Thanks, and I can't say the 16MP miss anything.

After more than 15 years working with the OM-4 I bought the E-M5 in 2012 and it's been a fantastic tool ever since with absolutely no problems (like the OM-4). And when I sometimes fix my old lenses to it just to see, I know that good glass is worth its price even after 20 years' time. In the last months I had the Kiron 2.8/105mm macro lens with me (it went till 1:1 with the OM-4) and was absolutely astonished by the results. Of course the Oly 2,8/60mm macro is much smaller and lighter. But for some animals (like butterflies) being at twice the distance can be a great advantage. I'll stick to my E-M5 till it breaks down. Nothing better than knowing your tool so well you can handle it asleep.

This was one of the first photos I took with the Oly 12-50mm kit lens

I still own it and use it from time to time. The only problem I have with the EM-5 is CAF, it's about as bad as it gets.
