Very good camera

Pro: + Extremely fast focus, light weight.
+ Dual Image stabilisation
+ Will shoot 4K UHD video
+ 20MP image
+ Touch screen works great and flips.
Cons:
- Being a Micro Four Third sensor, its low light capability is not as good as APS-C or full frame sensor.
- Expensive.
- Only Image Stabilisation on the lens will work if you are shooting video, and focusing is slow while videoing.

Awesome product - extremely fast focusing

I own full frame cameras for my work and I have to admit, this camera's focus system is lightening fast, you press the shutter and it focuses (literally). My Nikon D4s can't even focus that fast.

Pro: + Extremely fast focus, light weight. + The camera has an in-body stabilisation but if you use a lens that also has a stabilisation, you'll get Dual images stabilisation! + Will shoot 4K UHD video (not Cinema 4K). + 24MP image. + The Post Focus function is awesome and very helpful in choosing nearly any focus point in your image.
+ Start up is instant. + Touch screen works great. + This camera will shoot in Silent mode, i.e. electronic shutter.

Cons: - Any (good) lenses for this camera are as expensive as APS-C lenses. or even some Full Frame lenses.
- Being a Micro Four Third sensor, its low light capability is not as good as APS-C or full frame sensor.
- Expensive. - Only Image Stabilisation on the lens will work if you are shooting video

Conclusion: Highly recommended for travel camera due to its 'reasonably' small size. Get it if you can afford it!
