    Well, I just canceled out my E-P5 pre-order due to timing of my trip to the Philippines. So after much thought, postings on this forum including my recent weather sealing post, I just ordered the OM-D body and 12-50mm kit. The $150 instant rebate was all I needed to making my decision.

    I hope I did the right thing... this will be my "EDC even in rain kit" :tongue:

    It's what I would've done. Some nice features on the E-P5, but overall I personally feel the EM-5 is the better option- for me, by far. Had Olympus managed to stuff an EVF into there, who knows if I'd feel the same. And given your weather-sealed needs, it's clearly the best Oly choice.

    Same...the E-P5 looks great...I was very tempted. Then I saw the lack of EVF and that settled it for me. A few days later I picked up my EM-5.

    OP: Congrats on your purchase, you're going to love it!
