Re: where to enter: e-pl5 or rx100

I have both of these cameras and I think the image quality in general is pretty equivalent if your are comparing RX100 to the E-PL5 with just the 14-42mm kit lens.

The RX100 autofocus might be a little bit slower, but they are pretty close. I have no problems with it.

The LCD screen on the RX100 doesn't tilt, but it's double the resolution of the E-PL5 and looks great. Not a crucial difference, but I like a nice screen.

Make sure you get your hands on both cameras and see how they feel. The controls and button on both are fairly small. You might prefer one over the other once you play with them.

If you're not going to add another lens any time soon, the RX100 is pretty amazing for its size.
