    99% of the time will be taking photos with just the odd video more because it can. with that in mind what Olympus camera would you guys recommend? i have been looking at a couple now but im just not sure as if i could id probably buy 3 different cameras.

    What's more important to you -- small size, or manual controls and dials. Do you need weather proofing? And how important is a viewfinder?

    this is where i come to and think and think and still no answer. i know they are pretty small just want something no smaller than my E-PM1. id like dials. weather proofing is not high tho if one was better inside with sealing then i wouldn't say no. as for a VF im not fussed as i already have one tho i do use one when is very bright out

    FlyPenFly.....that doesnt help as that's where im stuck. i first started out loving the EP5 and still do but with the EM10 now about i like that. im saying more EP5 cos of the 5 axis which i hope will help shake but from what i have seen the EM10 stabilisation is very good.

    well its now pretty much OMD EM5 or OMD EM10 as the grip makes it better. does the extra £170 spent on the EM5 worth it? weather sealed is only worth if buy weather sealed lens tho has 5 axis not fussed over WIFI. so still no sure

    EP5 is a very fine camera, I love the styling and the 1/8000 shutter, the focus peaking, and the improved 5 axis IBIS. Also the size is just perfect, I like the ability to using the EVF or take it off. Plus the feel of the camera is just, well, so darn good.
