Is the E-P5 a better buy than the E-M5?
Dec 30, 2013

I am debating whether to get the E-P5 or the E-M5.

The price of the E-P5 has come down quite a bit where I am, and I can get the E-P5 with 17/f1.8 kit for slightly less than the E-M5 with the 12-50mm kit . But if I toss in the VF-4 for the E-P5 then it would cost another $200 more.

I really like the E-P5 and I'm willing to take the risk with the 'shutter shock' issue but the cost of the VF-4 (though a very nice unit by all accounts and better than that on the E-M5) is holding me back.

I'm new to MFT cameras btw but I like Olympus. I currently have an XZ-2 and I love it.

I decided to switch to MFT after all my Canon gear got stolen a month backĀ
