Good time to pull trigger on Oly E-PL5?
Mar 19, 2014

Hello.  New poster here.  New P&S/phone camera user looking to dive into the deep end of manual controls.

I've read plenty of reviews and thread discussions regarding the Olympus PEN E-PL5 and I'm pretty set on it as my next purchase; especially given the <$500 pricetag online.  Specifically, I have an opportunity to purchase this camera new, in-box for $400 shipped.  As far as I can tell, this is a pretty decent deal.  However, I'm a little hesitant that prices may drop further and/or Olympus might offer a double kit deal (as they have for the E-PM2) now that the E-M10 is out.

Since I'm so new to the camera world, I could use some advice on whether $400 is too good of a deal to pass up or if there's a better reason to wait instead.
