Re: The E-PX line needs a rethink

I think the Pen lineup is crowded at the moment and the E-P5 to make sense, it would i) have to be cheaper than the E-P3 (at launch) and ii) one of the E-PLX and E-PMX lines will have to go.

Edit: Oh, and I think Olympus would struggle to make a camera with a built in VF that has the same character as the existing E-PLX line.

I voice a similar sentiment in another post too. With the E-PL5 gaining the speed and sensor of the E-M5, it doesn't seem to make sense to maintain both an E-PL and E-P line. But the fact that Olympus chose to remove the built-in flash from the E-PL5 for no reason makes me think (and hope) that an E-P5 with the E-M5's sensor + focusing speed and a built-in flash will be released. I already have a VF-2, so I don't need the added expense of an in-body EVF.
