Superb camera in a compact package. Does most of what the OM-D does, just in a much more compact and less expensive package.
Here is what's missing compared to the OM-D: built-in viewfinder, weather sealing, and IBIS. Still does IS. However, the camera has the same excellent sensor as the OM-D.
I use it with the larger grip and the VF-2. Wonderful for low angle photography.

The E-PL5 is truly a contender with a know out ability to capture a moment as you travel. No one notices the camera. BUt with the right Lens from Olympus like the 35mm f 1.8. You can go into the low light an bright light realm and shoot quicker and bag more frames than someone with a big full frame. I just got back from Holy Week in Antigua Guatemala .
