I've been thinking about prices.

With the bodywork seemingly downgraded for the e-pM2, it might not grab the walk-in customer base as I'm sure the e-pM1 did with its nice metal bodywork, attractive colours and good feel.

This makes me think that's going to be the model to crash its price more and sooner than the others.

So I'd wait ... and then buy it cheap just to get the sensor.

I can glue stuff to it to improve the handling and controls, heck that's what I did to my e-pM1 anyway.

Great advice for those who are patient. I ended up buying the E-M5 after all. It will arrive on Tuesday according to UPS -- can't wait!
