Re: Olympus E-PL5 replacing NEX3

Thanks for the links to the other threads. Size and weight is probably my issue with the NEX. It's an awesome camera, but I still find the total package, especially with the lens, to not something that I can grab and go.

I checked the RX100, and it's nice too, but I am thinking of something in between. Something with a better sensor and better lenses (primes). The Olympus E-PL5 seems nice. I do want the tilt screen, as I find it to be useful in certain cases (like my NEX3).

I'm new at this, and I see people recommending Panasonic lenses. However, I read that the Olympus body may not be able to fix some distortions from non Olympus lenses. I wonder if this is a true concern or not.
