Recently i got my first PEN, a E-P5. I have been playing around for a few days, and find the build quality excellent. I will post a"first impression - with photos" soon....

Some issues will raise, and the first is the viewfinder - or the missing of a VF....

Coming from E-620, I'm not used to a big OVF. But this was the only option for me, and worked fine.

I did not invest in the EV-4 for my P5, and realize that each time I grab the camera to shoot - I lift it up to my face...

I didn't fight that habit - I feel more engaged and more stable with a VF, so I indulged it.   The LCD has been very useful, and I wouldn't want a camera w/o one at this point in time.

If you simply use the camera as-is you'll find out soon enough whether LCD only is something you WANT to rely on.   As a species we can adapt to anything we desire to master.
