Cons:

Touchscreen is kind of gimmicky.
No built in flash or viewfinder

Other Thoughts:

This is a really cool camera. I got it for my upcoming trip after toying around with the epl3. Nice step up. Very lightweight and small. Get a pancake lens to make it even smaller. I like that you can map out the buttons and setting to your liking. Having the ability to take multiple exposures and hdr in camera is also really cool. HDR is ok but i think my phone is does it a bit better, obviously i haven't wrapped my head around it yet.

The touch screen I semi useful. It's nice tap on the screen to accurately get a focus on your subject, but I can do without it. The paper manual is lame. Do a google search and download the full manual. While you are at it look up some of the other users' customizations. Really helps bring out the potential of the camera.

Other than that it's everything you would expect of a modern camera. Sharp pictures, fast focus, and considerably cheap considering the amount of technology in the camera.
