Re: Why a E-P5 and an E-PL6?

Time to merge these two cameras.

With the OMD sitting at $999 I can't think why anyone would want to pay more for the kudge of a solution an optional VF offers.

Put the two dials on the EPL series and end the EP series.
The EP's are too expensive for what they are, and don't offer any different functionality from the OMD.

I totally agree with you based on the limited leaks we have concerning the upcoming E-P5.  I was really hoping for a built-in EVF, but just maybe Olympus will had enough other stuff to make it different enough to fit between the E-PL6 and the E-M5.  Faster AF is a nice plus and WIFI could be nice for some people.  Still not enough but there could be more.

Right now it makes me a little excited about the E-M6.
