Thom is right, I too struggle to see how a similar price E-P5 fit against an EM-5.

I amid it is vey nice to have another choice for high end m43 camera.

BUT - at the end of the day - I much rather have an EM5 wtih EVF than a EP5 without an EVF.  Those extra feature on E-P5 doens't seem to any significant improvement for me to choose it over EM5.

I'm more curious to see who among us would choose an E-P5 over E-M5.  I wonder how many would actually BUY EP5 with their own money?  That is the true measure of a camera success.  If E-P5 sells well, then Olympus is right.  If E-P5 doesn't sell well, then Thom is right.

I have the E-PL1 with the VF-2. I have the VF-2 either attached to the camera or in the small viewfinder pocket on the strap. I can see myself with E-P5 and VF-4. The new viewfinder is 1 mm larger than VF-2, but the view is significantly larger, which is the main deal for me. I think that when people start to use such viewfinders, they will never go back to smaller ones. Like TV screens. Of course the new OM-D would have it when it arrives - but when it happens it will probably be a significant price difference between the cameras.
