    One of the things I'm disappointed with when it comes to the E-PL3 is its video quality. Since IS while shooting video is digital, it often causes various quality issues. I used to use a Canon SX230HS that IMO had better video quality than the E-PL3. Most reviews of the E-PL5 completely skip over any review of its video quality. Anyone have any opinions on how it compares to the -PL3? Before the -PL5 came out, I was thinking of upgrading to the E-M5.

    The OM-D is much better for IBIS for both video and stills compared to any of the other Olympus models including the E-PL5. Not sure how the E-PL3 and E-PL5 compare though.

    Hence the problem. The reviews are little more than "the e-pl5 takes 1080p video" and nothing else. Very disappointing.
