My recommendation would be E-PL5 + Panny 20mm / 25mm and VF-2.

Nice, but I would rather have the same logo on a camera and a lens.:-)



I would like the same, but he's right, the Olympus cameras have offerings the Panasonics just don't. And for all those Panasonic fans out there (none bigger than me but I don't like their cameras), the Panasonic lenses are better for most people. If you want Oly + Oly the only lenses you'll be getting are the 12 mm (1.8, I think) or the 45 mm 1.8. So how are you going to get anything between the 29-89 mm equiv range? You need to look at the Panasonics. And then place Olympus stickers on it!

So, not sure what you're getting at here. There's the older serviceable but certainly not stellar f/2.8 pancake and the newer f/1.8, which seems to be pretty nice, as well.
