How much have you used one? The image quality is great, almost as good as the NEX-7 (no competition for a DSLR, of course), but absolutely everything else...
Wow. Your list below makes zero sense and makes me think that either A) you've never actually used an OM-D or B) You used one for 3 minutes. Let's go by point:
EVF resolution sucks.
Um...if you say so. It's quite high resolution. Not quite as high as the NEX-7, but damn near indistinguishable to my eyes. Based on the point below, I think you probably had 'high refresh' on, which is a crappy setting...it drastically reduces EVF resolution.
EVF framerate sucks (even when you switch out of the inexplicably-default "low framerate mode").
Actually, I find the OM-D's EVF framerate to be the best of any EVF I've ever used. It's MUCH, MUCH better than the NEX-7's EVF in low light, both in noise and lag. In fact, it's extremely good in low light and doesn't lag at all. I have no idea what you're talking about here.
Shutter lag sucks (even if you turn image review off, you have to look at your shot for half a second or so before you return to live monitoring, very jarring)
This is flat out false. If you turn off image review, you don't need to look at your shot at all....there is about a 0.1 second EVF blackout...about what the average DSLR blacks out for on the mirror. If you were still reviewing images after every shot, you had the setting set wrong.
Grip material sucks (basically hard plastic). Ergonomics suck (very few buttons are reachable from a strong shooting position). Tripod thread sucks (off image axis). Tilting screen sucks (difficult to move). Buttons suck (so tiny I have to press everything but the shutter with a fingernail). Battery meter sucks (only appears while camera is starting up). Weight sucks (so light that vibration is out of control and you need triple the shutter speeds you would with a D300).
Now you're just trolling. It's fine you don't like the camera, but you're overstating just a bit here. Ok...a lot more than a bit.
