Re: It's a good place

Just realised that I failed to answer your non-exhibit based questions due to my (18 month old) son attacking my keyboard and me forgetting about the rest of it as a consequence!  Sorry.

Here you go:

Back to a few questions about the camera:

Does the EPL5 image stabilazation hum like in the EPM5?

No it doesn't, although it doesn't in the E-M5 either post firmware 1.5

And is the shutter sound as quiet or more quiet than EPM5?

about the same, but the E-PL5 shutter is more audible (it's a bit more noticeable (to me at least) rather than being louder)

Do you use the clip on EVF?

Yes I do and it's good (I had a VF-2 that I used to use with my E-P3), but it falls off all the time in my bag.

I prefer the rangefinder style over the mini DSLR MFT so thinking of getting a black EPL5 + EVF as a travel camera.

The E-PL5 would be ideal for that purpose. It's great for urban photography as (at least with my black one) people either don't notice it or think you are holding a compact.
