    I've got an EPM2 at present, but miss the flippy screen of the EPL5.

    But, I don't care for the mode dial on the EPL5 (so easily gets changed in-pocket) nor how the flippy screen gets in the way of operating the back dial a bit.

    There are lots of "pie in the sky" things I could dream of for the next EPLx, but I guess mainly I'd like the mode dial to be recessed under the case -- like with the EP1 -- so it wouldn't accidentally get knocked around.

    Or, far less likely, would be to remove the mode dial, and get a more comprehensive touch-screen for settings approach, much like the EOS-M uses.

    I guess two other items, too a 920K dot LCD and wifi direction connection mode.

    Yes, but it's not available in the US. (I'm not sure about the EU.) Let's just move it up to the PL7. I do like the way the touchscreen works on the EOS M, but it's also a pain when you keep randomly triggering it. I'm not sure how to fix that aside from turning it off, but that defeats the purpose. You almost need a iPhone like button.
