Olympus EPL 5 - still the best buy?
2 months ago

Hi all,

New father to be and as such have delved into the complex photography realms to try and get the best camera (for me) in order to capture baby moments.

Having read a fair bit, I've settled on MFT (or near equivalent form factor) as it offers the best picture/size/price combination (for my needs anyway).

The Olympus EPL 5 appears to be rated very highly and if it was this time last year, it would have been a no brainer buy. However, it now appears to be 'old' and there are new contenders like the Panasonic GM1 and Sony's RX100 Mark II (not MFT). So question is, is it still the best camera to buy in this class or is there another I should consider? The Panny and Sony would be the very upper end of my budget, but the form factors are smaller (enough to fit in a pocket) so potentially a winner.

Appreciate any help on this.

Thanks, Nick

Sony RX100 II
