I passed on buying the E-M5 because it didn't have enough extra for me over the E-PL1 and I don't use the VF-2 viewfinder much, so a waste of features in my case.

BUT...... the E-PL5 makes sense to me because of the (hardly mentioned) feature that the 4 MySets can be mapped to any 4 Mode dial spots. That highly desirable feature alone made me order the E-PL5 so now I can have a camera that behaves nicely, just like I use my Pana LX3 and its C1/C2 setup on its dial.

So Olympus, you know what you can provide E-M5 owners in the next firmware update, give them the E-PL5 features.

You sure?  Just browsed the manual and fiddled with my E-PL5 but don't see how to do this. As with the E-M5 when you assign a myset to some button you have to keep the button pressed to keep the myset active. Or am I missing something?  Hope I am.

Personally think it would be nice if a button could be assigned to a button so when you pressed it you would toggle through active mysets.
