I'm rooting for a tilt lcd, like the one in the em5.

The E-PL5 already has this.

I'm having a hard time imagining what features(costing hundreds of dollars) can distinguish the EP5 from the P5L and PM2

5-axis IBIS like the OM-D?

That is the rumor, that it is getting an improved version of the OM-D E-M5 IBIS.

For the engine...yeah, I should have realized that. I assume a typo/oversite 4/3 rumors.

If the IBIS is actually improved, well, then, wow. The OMD's IBIS is already the best I've ever used.

That was my thought as well, "They can make it better!?!?!"

I am vastly over spoiled by my OM-D E-M5 IBIS. The thought that it could be in anyway improved kind of blows my mind. Though we have no way of knowing what "improved" actually means. Maybe this time around it is silent? Or maybe there is more rise/fall/tilt available for stabalization...but it doesn't actually impact handholdability, just how much it can be moved before the sensor has to recenter or something.

That said...if someone is claiming improved, I assume that means you could probably handhold at slightly slower shutter speeds.

I can already do 1/2s at 12/14mm most of the time if I am a little careful. What next? 1s? 1/4s at 25mm?
