Panasonic doesn't have a small rangefinder type body with a hotshoe for under a grand anymore, outside of the GX1 that's getting cleared out... The G5 isn't much bigger than an E-PL5 with a mounted viewfinder tho... But it sounds like the E-PL5 is just about what you're looking for, given that the $600 budget's just for the camera...

OTOH, depending on how much you're gonna spend on that extra EVF you might consider stretching the body for the GX7, kind of a stretch but it'll be more compact than any body with a mounted EVF and using the built in EVF doesn't prevent you from mounting a flash (tho one's built in too).
