    I am looking to get my wife a camera for Christmas. I am thinking a E-M10 Mark II.
    What I want to know is why Olympus had to pull it from it's original launch date? What do I need to look for to make sure the camera I get her is working properly?

    The lens locking pin had a rough surface that could wear the lens flange of plastic lenses .....

    Oh OK that should have been an easy fix and will be easy to check once I get her camera.
    Just saw B&H has the black one with kit lens in stock.

    There's nothing to worry about with the issue that stopped sales; it's all fixed now. I recommend you set up the SCP for her so she doesn't go nuts initially trying to figure out how to make the camera work.

    She has used my E-M5 but I will help her learn the camera. I am teaching her photography. She has a great eye she just needs trained on the technical stuff.

    Great camera, your wife will love it. I returned mine because of the lens mount issue, but those units should be about cleared from the supply chain by now. Give B&H a call and they can tell you if there is still a chance you could get a bad one. they'll give you the straight goods.
