I must admit, that I have problems in the beginning with the menus, and in my opinion, there is a lack of clear information - or you can call it a clear path - to set what you want - exactly what you experienced yourself in the store, because you have to go into another menu to set, what you just want, but there is no path to it (in the "in-camera"), so you have to read the manual, or at least some of it.
You could also say, that it is because I only have shot with Nikons for the past 7 years, and I can take any Nikon DSLR body, even I have not tryed it before, and use it properly with the settings I want in few minutes, but of course the software-men at Olympus have another approach, and you have to learn that.
But when figured out - as everything is - it is very easy., and after figured out you do not understand, why it was so troublesome in the beginning ;)
I have certainly not regret buying this camera - bought it with the lenses Olympus 45mm f/1.8 and the pancake from Panasonic 20mm f/1.7, and now I have a camera with me all the time, because it can stay in a pocket (jacket) and that very easy with the Panasonic 20mm f/1.7.
I can really recommend those 2 lenses, and I would say, that the Olympus 45mm f/1.8 is cheap, but so good, if you like the focal length = x 2 = 90 mm
The image quality is so good,I think you will love it, when you have figured the menus out - it is about or very near my Nikon D7000 (but the DSLR is better for fast moving things, like sports, if you shoot this very serious)
