E-PL5 does have low-pass, and so does P-M2 similar to E5

This is a response I just received from Olympus technical, on my question about the rumor of no low-pass on Olympus latest PENs

Thank you for contacting Olympus Technical Support.
The E-PL5 and E-M5 render the same level of image quality as both use the same image sensor and image processor engine. The E-PL5 and E-M5 both employ LPFs (Low Pass Filters) that are not as strong as those used in some other camera designs. This special LPF design in conjunction with "Fine Detail Processing" of the TruePic VI processing engine contribute to the rendering of final digital image. This technology has been used in Olympus E-System products since the introduction of the E-5.
