    I bought an E-PL5 on a spur of the moment thing.

    dscf4545-edit. "1024" height="768">

    I had sold my E-P3 a couple of weeks back, I missed it and I found a decent price body only on the E-PL5 and thought “what the hell”. Unfortunately, my first impressions were poor. The screen seemed tiny in comparision to either the E-P3 or E-M5...

    Suffice it to say there is a happy ending to this story.

    Cheers - this one was really to demonstrate the IBIS and high ISO abilities, but I do love the shot myself. It encapsulates the mix of ancient and modern within the City of London.

    Thanks for posting these sgoldswo. I think it is the deciding factor in my question on what to buy for the back-up for my OM-D. By the way, what Panny lens is that on the camera in the first image here? I see all the specs on the front ring except the focal length! It must be pretty wide since the near focus is 18cm!

    Thanks! It's the 14mm pancake - the perfect lens for pocketability with the E-PL5
