    It was unless you do event work for pay. The E-PL5 is pretty much a zero rather than hero with a FL-36R flash mounted on it, lol. The mode dial moves too easily and you can't use a viewfinder when you need to.

    I LOVED the image quality, but the handling drove me back to something more substantial. I ended up trading the E-PL5 for a Panasonic G5 and for my needs that works well.

    Still, if you don't have to do much with a big flash and you don't worry about the mode dial moving accidently the E-PL5 is a GREAT choice with it's tilting touchscreen and excellent sensor. It's a sharp looker also.

    For more discreet, portable work I got a Panasonic LX7 although I'd also consider an Olympus XZ-2 but I got a deal on the Panasonic.

    I'm not a brand partisan as you can see, lol. Both cameras and lenses are mixed.

    I clicked on this thread to ask why you would want to buy a camera the same size, until I saw the picture. Wow! The OP is right, nice camera for your purse or front pocket. :thumbup:
