    Wow, nice shots of epic scenes. It's great to see the maligned 12-50 put to great use.

    Fred, agreed. Just upgraded from Olympus PEN E-PL3, which I owned two months, to the E-PL5 and I am really impressed at the image quality! I usually have the Oly 17mm, f/2.8 on it, but otherwise use the standard kit and any issues I have with any images are typically due to me and not the camera!

    The EPL5 is very impressive, it never ceases to amaze me, I have it with me all the time.

    I will receive my E-PM2 in the mail today and can't wait to try it after seeing your beautiful pictures since it shares same censors as E-PL5.
    This will be my second tryout of m4/3 after EP1 & EPL1 hopefully it will take some time away from my Fuji system.

    Wow stunning pictures! I have owned the GF1, G3, and P3. I have to say, the handling of the PL5 was a little awkward at first, but its picture quality really out weights the awkward handling! I'm always amazed at picture quality of this little guy. it's been my favorite m4/3 camera so far!

    Is the 12-50mm worth it if you already own the 14-42?

    I agree . Its a little awkward.

    I picked up my 12-50 locally for 200 IMO a good deal
    I do a fair amount of hiking so I need a Land scape macro lens . the 12-50 fit the bill.
    I like the extra 2 mm for land scape

    Wow very nice images. I had to sell my E-M5 because of money issues, and bought a Canon SL1. I forgot about the EPL5. -_- How is the video quality on the EPL5? Is there a place where I can download the original video files?

    I don't find the E-PL5 awkward at all. Having crossed the threshhold usablity wise last year sometime. Now everything comes second nature and only one or two clicks away. I don't even use the EVF except for once or twice when it was really sunnny.

    Thought about getting the 12-50 for it as well at that price, but now that the 12-32 is out, I might go for that instead once it's more widely available.

    My PL5 is a complete equal to my EM5... In fact, I prefer the viewfinder flexibility (have VF2, considering VF4)... It is also a better accessory for a night out on the town than the OMD, IMO
