    I have one, albeit and older model and have never really gotten on with it. All my current m43 bodies have wi-fi built in, so I don't need it there.

    They can be a bit fiddly to get to work sometimes.

    Aren't you looking to get a E-PL5? To the best of my knowledge that has built in Wi-Fi. You won't need an Eye-Fi card in that case.

    I use one on my EM5 and love it. For transferring photos to my iPhone it works much better then the Olympus app and my EM1. I have it set to only transfer photos I protect.

    I thought the implementation on the Eye-Fi was very kludgy. I never got along with it.

    I'm thinking of using it on my Holga Digital, since it supports it. I might need to hit you up and pick your brain if I have issues with it. :D

    I have a 16GB EyeFi Mobi card. The Mobi version is very easy to setup, and easy to use. However, it's limited to jpeg files. Files can be seamlessly transferred to phone/tablet during a photo shoot. I even use it in wifi enabled camera when I feel lazy because I don't need to take extra time to set up a wifi connection between camera and phone, and then wait for the files to transfer over.
    Mobi Pro version can transfer raw files.

    I used an old first-gen one and it was spotty. However, now I have a new-gen Mobi Pro 32GB version that they make, and it is excellent. Highly recommend it if you want to speedily and automatically get photos onto a mobile device when you're out and about.

    Sorry. I think I was getting confused in the feature set between the E-PL5 and E-PL7.

    I went with the Toshiba FlashAir II on the E-M5.

    Works fine with the card door closed for me.

    It's great for "photo booth" style setups where the latest picture gets transferred to the iPad for (relatively) immediate display. That helps pique the interest of (skeptical / shy) bystanders.

    For large JPEGs, it's a bit slow. Around 12 seconds. Instead, I prefer to save in RAW+Medium which allows the JPEG to pop up in under 5 seconds. For shots that look particularly good, I develop the RAWs later.
