Re: Why a E-P5 and an E-PL6?

I still find this confusing.  The E-P5 design looks good to me though without an articulating LCD it would not be very useful to me.

So, why a E-P5 and E-PL6 having such similar IQ etc.  Why not just an E-PL6.  What is in the E-P5 design that would make one pick that over the E-PL6?

I guess we will have to wait fr more leaks are the actual anouncements.  I still find it difficult to see how the upcoming  E-PL6 and E-P5 and the existing cameras like the E-M5 differentiate themselves from each other.  No real leaks for the E-PL6 yet, except that it will be a minor upgrade.  Maybe it gets wifi or maybe the new optional EVF needs a new accessory port and the E-PL6 gets the new accessory port.  Basically all we know about the E-P5 is that it looks almost like the E-P3, it has a control dial around the shutter button, it has wifi, it AF faster, and that it does not have an built-in evf but does take the new optional evf.

So I am guessing there will be a lot more leaks in the coming two weeks.
