Front dial

On the original, this front dial controlled shutter speed; on its digital descendant, it controls color and art filters.

Card slot not here

Sadly, the SD card slot is in the battery compartment, not here; the HDMI and proprietary USB connector occupy this valuable real estate.

Pay up for the grip

Like many companies who design cameras with no grips, Olympus makes you fork over extra bucks to be able to hold the camera comfortably.
