E-PL7 vs E-P5?
Aug 28, 2014

It seems to me like there is very little difference between these two cameras.

When you step up from the E-M10 to the E-M1, you get the significatn additional features of weather sealing and PDAF.

For an extra $200, the E-P5 only gives you an extra dial and 2 extra axes of IBIS. But reviewers said there is very little difference between the 3-axis and 5-axis IBIS when they reviewed the E-M10.

On the other hand, the benefit of the E-PL7 is:

81-point vs 35 point autofocus
Truepic 7 image engine, which I believe has improvements over the Truepic 6 image engine in the E-P5.
2 ounces lighter.

So the E-PL7 is possibly a better camera for less money?
