I did try the E P5 with the Panasonic Leica and that combo is fantastic.
But i bought the E P5 with the 17 mm and EVF, as a kit effectively you get the EVF free.
The total package price was € 1499 and the E P5 stand alone cost € 999 with a separate EVF you pay € 1265. I consider that expensive.
Might come back to the E P5 when the prices drop or look at the Panasonic GX7 with the 20mm.
The camera is brilliant and so are some lenses in the m4/3 system (12mm, 25mm, 75 mm)

Instead of returning the kit, why not sell the 17/1.8, and keep the ep5 and vf4.  The 17/1.8 is in demand for street photography, where edge sharpness isn't important, and it commands a high price.  Replace it with a 25/1.4 and you'll have your dream kit.
