How do I like my new Olympus?

Mirrorless cameras are nearly half the market in Asia and I believe they are the future. There's no doubt that in image quality they are catching up to the APS-C sensor-based cameras. They're also catching up on better low-light performance and they are catching up on value as well.
After shooting with my brand new OM-D for over a week now, I can sum up my whole experience that this simply the best Micro Four Thirds camera money can buy. The OM-D is a bit pricy, but I believe it's worth the extra cash. (thanks Dad! ;-)
So what do I think?
The camera is small and feels great in my hands, it’s light, quick, and so far a blast to shoot with. The autofocus is one of the quickest I’ve seen on any camera and the 5-axis stabilizations… yes it’s a great feature, awesome if you use some old manual lens. And last, but not least, I really enjoy the great quality of the pictures!
So why would you carry a heavy camera when a lighter one would do the same job?
