There are four Oly models that would work well for you, and all of them have much better controls than the EPL1 (and better performance).

If you would prefer a built-in EVF, the EM10 is the way to go. It has the better IBIS and is still quite compact. If you want to stay with the PEN styling and use your EVF, the EP5 is another excellent option. If the budget is a bit less forgiving, either the EPM2 or EPL5 are available, and both also have the excellent sensor that is in the higher end models, too. Those two have the less good IBIS and smaller rear screens (and fewer diect controls, but what they have will still be better than what your EPL-1 has).

You can't go wrong with any of these!

Don't the E-PL5, E-PM2 and E-M10 all use the same 3 axis IBIS ?

No. The EM10 uses a version of the floating sensor in the EM1 and EM5, while tthe two smaller PENs use the original less effective design.

Ah I didn't know that, but I think that the E-M10, E-PL5 and E-PM2 have 3 axis while the E-M1 and E-M5 have 5 axis stabilisation - is that right ?

John
