No offense but it's a completely different class...

...compared to PENs - as a matter of fact pretty much compared to anything MFT out there.

As of today this is the most advanced MFT camera by far, with hands-down the best sensor available in any MFT body.

I have a safe bet that it caused a sizable panic at Panasonic and they are tweaking their GH3 protos like crazy but beyond beating it in video - not a big challenge, let's admit it - they will have a hard time offering features that will make the IBIS tradeoff worth it (there's no way to develop an OIS replacement this fast) for the non-video user (and that's when assuming their sensor DR will match the Sony one in the OM-D.)

I currently have an Olympus E-P1. I need to justify my next purchase.

I'd love to come up with a list of great reasons to order the Olympus M-5. Help?
