With the E-PL5 is not always that spots on, and sometimes it detects odd objects (e.g., part of a plant) as face.  Not sure about the EM5 though.

Exactly.  If I forget to turn it off, sometimes I find a strange grey box outlining random objects in the viewfinder... speaking of which, the OMD has a hard time detecting faces BEHIND the camera as well: the auto-EVF switch is all but unworkable when using the touch screen on an angle.  Go to touch focus, and the image disappears.  Isn't it a bit odd that switch doesn't disengage automatically when you tilt the screen out?
