Torn between Olympus OM-D E-M5 and the E-PL5!?
Jan 18, 2013

Okay there's quite a difference between these two cameras. I'm trying to decide whether spending the extra money on the E-M5 is really worth it if I can get the Olympus E-PL5 with the same sensor for $550! This decision has left me so tortured that I am left exhausted and undecided! Please help me decide? I need some pros and cons! I run a website called talkingtree.org/~ So any help is appreciated!
Right now, I just purchased the EP2 a few weeks ago and some lenses. My new lenses are as follows:
Rokinon 7.5mm 3.5 lens
Olympus 75mm 1.8 lens
Olympus 17mm 2.8 lens
Panasonic 25mm 1.4 lens.
I'm wondering if I could make due without having the OM-D and still be very satisfied owning the E-PL5. It's all the cost factor that is making this decision so hard as I am a college student getting through school and so every penny counts!
HELP! lol
