+: Microscope mode is simply amazing. You can focus as close as 1cm and zoom 4X optically. The built in focus stacking will process several images to maximize sharpness. With the LG-1 light guide you get perfect lighting up close. If this isn't enough you can choose digital zoom to magnify zoom by factors of 1X, 2X or 4X. (obviously image quality degrades at these high settings)
+: The camera feels very well built.
+: 4K video, GPS and waterproof are all nice features to have but I haven't used them yet.
+: Std. micro USB data/charging cable vs proprietary cable
-: The biggest disappointment is WiFi. The primitive WiFi only works with cell phones. You cannot use WiFi over a network/PC. I don't know of any photographers that post process and archive their images on a cell phone. My older Panasonics have much better built in WiFi.
-: The user interface is just OK. Some modes and settings are just not very obvious and somewhat cluttered. Having the full user manual is a must and I see that Olympus has finally put it on their US website. (the included Quick Start guide is worthless)
-: While in microscope mode, there is no provision for user tweaks to aperture or program shift. Although focus stacking is great to have, you cannot select the size of the stack. (I think three images is all it can stack but focus bracketing gives you more options if you want to do your own stacking).
P.S. The gear in the images is about .300" O.D. The first image was taken at min. focus distance of about 1 cm using 4X optical zoom and focus stacking. The second image adds 4X digital zoom for a total of 16X.
It won't take poster quality portraits that you could crop the heck out of and still get an useable image.
It won't give you creamy bokeh/ridiculous depth of field like a 50mm will.
It won't let give you the reach and the zoom that you have become used to with your favorite telephoto.
But what it does give you is an amazing rugged camera that you could fit in your pocket, go trek/dive/bang it around and not worry about it.
It can give you a nifty HUD like display you see in video games with your photos/videos.
So all in all, to the pixel peepers out there, in our day and age where most of our works are viewed on a 4 inch display, content and storytelling reigns supreme.
Plus.. show me a $500 camera that can go down ~50ft and take pictures like this.
