One picture that tells everything...
Salt n pepper eh?
Yeah.. right! Like coffee and milk....
That is a cute little thing!
Do not need... Do not purchase... GAS already bad enough... Must resist...
I'm treating myself.... Just sold the 14, 17/2.8 and the 20... but why?? To get a 17/1.8... wow.. arghh.. no again no...!!!.
My E-M5 is getting a PEN E-PM2 as a mate soon!
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.
