I have a E-PL1 with a busted back screen. Since I have a VF3, I've been able to keep using it but it's going to need repairing or replacement soon. My plan is to take my tax refund and get a different used body and I've pretty much got it down to these two contenders based on KEH prices. Both are solid 16 mp models from a couple years back and both hover in the $250 region used. My initial questions are: E-PL5: Are the menus like on the E-PL1? Does it still have the SCP? Does the screen shut off when an external VF like my VF3 is used? Panasonic G5: Can it be set to monochrome like the E-PL1 to use in P/A/S/M modes or is it only from the "creative mode"? One of my favorite things with the E-PL1 is to set it to 1:1 aspect ratio & monochrome with a yellow filter effect turned on. How does the monochrome images compare to those of Olympus? How much will I miss IBIS? I have either Oly lenses or legacy glass, mostly a landscape (rural & urban) shooter with the usual family photos. I know that the EVF is better than my VF3 but is that enough to outweigh any possible issues from the above questions? My lens kit is the kit O14-42/3.5-5.6, O17/2.8, Cosina FD mount 28/2.8, Canon FD 50/1.8, Nikon F 50/1.4, Industar M39 50/2.8. I'm considering the O25/1.8 & O45/1.8 as I can find them used at reasonable (for my wallet) prices. Thanks for any thoughts.
