Olympus, why? A E-PL5 question

did you go with a 460k dot screen?

E-P3 has a 12megapixel but a 640k dot screen.. year 2011

E-PL5 has a 16megapixel but a 460 dot screen.. year 2012

why? add a + and then distract something else ?

Photographers using the E-PL5 have to compose based on the screen... as there is not viewfinder...

so, a low resolution screen is a miss...

and it is very bad for manual focusing...

Anyway, I was just about to pull the trigger, buy this camera.. and then I saw this 460k dot


I have a Sony Rx-100 with a 1,228k dots...

why Olympus?

What are you playing at? How do you plan to shift those cameras?

An honest question!
