    I ordered one for the lab that I manage and I got to play with it a bit. I have to say that I don't particularly care for the build quality. The camera itself is solid enough and the body is nice and grippy but I actually prefer the feel of my EPL-1. I'm sure it performs well but IMHO it feels a bit cheapish. It does look good (the EPL-1 won't win any beauty contests). Also the charger and battery also MUCH more cheaply made than the older ones. I suppose you gotta cut costs somewhere. It was a bit of a surprise.

    No matter, I'm sure It'll be a good purchase for us.
