What would you look for int he E-PM2 and E-PL5?

We'll know well enough on the 18th when Photokina 2012 opens its doors, but still fun to speculate in the interim.

The big news of course will be if the E-M5 sensor does in fact come to both, and if the E-PL4 will be priced for $599, $100 less than its predecessor's MSRP. Should the E-PM2 simply hold its predecessor's $500 intro MSRP, it will become a true bargain given the improvement in DR.

What else might they bring to the party?

I would hope the E-PM remains the same size as the E-PM1, but adds a small grip, improved IBIS (hey, anything would be an improvement, talk about low hanging fruit ), and a full-sized touch 3" LCD. Owning an E-PM1, I also hope they move the video button to the top of the body where I wouldn't hit it so often.

For the E-PL4, I'd like to see it actually grow a bit in size (between E-P3 and E-PL3 sizes) with removable grips for handling various sized lenses, improved IBIS, a full-sized touch/tilt screen 3" OLED, built-in flash, more buttons and another dial, and ideally some type of built-in EVF.

A wishlist to be sure, but either would make a great second body to an E-M5.

Thoughts?
