The OM-D and E-PL5 offer exceptional high ISO performance. They easily match or best any camera in their price range.

We'll just have to agree to disagree on that one. However, even if true, what does that have to do with anything?

Probably not true, anyway. The OM-D is exceptional for its slightly smaller sensor size, but it doesn't quite match (for example) the same-generation NEX-6 and D7000, which at $900 are both cheaper than the OM-D at $1000. (Not to mention entry-level DSLRs like the D3200, which are at a much lower price point).

My E-PL5 shares the same sensor as the OM-D. I paid $400 for it new but retail street price is $550-$600.

Yes the OVF and EVF is an expensive addition but I don't need it. Pentamirror OVFs are terrible. I can't imagine them being any better than an EVF. Also Most EVFs offer 100% coverage.

Ugh... than you've never used a good OVF.

It should also be pointed out that DSLRs in the $1000 price range have pentraprism OVFs, usually with 100% coverage.

What about the $600 price range?
