Assuming same sensor and IBIS, the E-PM2 body combined with an eBay Pan 20mm f1.7 may become the new budget low-light/take anywhere/street shooting king. Nice combination for around $750.

Just to clarify, how many stops better did you find the E-PL5 IBIS compared to your E-PM1? This, along with the E-M5 sensor and improved screen in bright light seem significant upgrades to my E-PM1.


I haven't extensively used E-PM1 IBIS, so I don't know, E-PM1 was my backup body.

Apart from using E-M5 my main camera has been E-P3 and I find its IBIS very reliable, 3 stops at least. But, reading user reports it looks like E-P3 IBIS is better than E-PM1/E-PL3 IBIS. Don't know yet how it compares to E-PL5, need more experience.
