Yes, I have the E-PM2 and I agree it is very usable! I still think spending $100 more for the E-PL5 is probably worth it for the better controls and flip screen, but yeah you could take the minimalist option and go with a E-PM2. Absolutely!

In addition, in terms of lenses, I just read a review which suggests (without proving) that the new Olympus 25/1.8 more than holds it own against the by now famous Panasonic 25/1.4 lens I recommended above. The Olympus lens sells for $399.99 saving you about $125 over the Panasonic lens AND IT IS MUCH SMALLER AND LIGHTER. Check it out, if you are interested. http://robinwong.blogspot.it/2014/02/olympus-mzuiko-25mm-f18-lens-review.html

Though right now, if you live in the USA and also want the 40-150mm lens, the difference is $250.

  • E-PM2, 14-42mm II-R, 40-150mm R lens kit: $400
  • E-PL5, 14-42mm II-R kit: $500
  • 40-150mm R lens added on: $150.
