    i am very pleased to have received my EM1 this afternoon.

    i've been charging it for what seems like 2+ hours and it is still amber/orange. as per the manual, orange = not ready/still charging.

    it does say that a full charge may take as long as 4 hours. however, never ever have i taken a brand new camera out of its factory box and needed to wait more than 2 hours for it to "top up", as most batteries were already partially charged.

    may i ask other EM1 owners' experience please?

    thanks in advance. eager to use it!

    Replied to this on the other forum you posted also. Took 3 hours with my E-M1, 4 hours with my E-M5. Let us know when you hit four hours.
