What is the point of the E-PL5?

I want to like the E-PL5 but considering with EVF it's only $100 cheaper than the E-M5 but:

  • No thumb dials, E-M5 has 2.
  • no capability to use the battery grip and even more controls when using big lenses
  • inferior LCD screen with a lower resolution, OLED is Nice.
  • no body only kits
  • no 5-axis stabilization
  • weaker battery life
  • isn't significantly smaller like the E-PM

What's the point? Just pay $100-$200 more for the vastly superior E-M5.
