    Good afternoon,

    Sadly, there is no place around me that keeps these two cameras in stock. I'd love to compare them and the E-M5 side by side. I asked questions here earlier about controls of the E-PL5. It looks like the only things you lose going from it to the E-PM2 are the control dial and moveable screen. I was looking at the size differences here:

    Compare camera dimensions side by side

    So the only appreciable differences are that the E-PM2 is 4.4mm less deep and weighs 56 grams less than the E-PL5? I guess from reading reviews that the E-PM2 seemed a LOT smaller. I am curious what people who have used both think about the differences between them.

    Yes, the only physical difference besides buttons and button placement is the tilt screen on the Lite line which the Mini line doesn't have. That makes the Lite a little thicker. How much difference that makes all depends on how small your bag is. :)
