What happened to the E-P5?

I am an E-PL5 shooter. I was very impressed with the E-P5 ergonomics and the VF-4 when they were introduced last summer. Discussion of this camera seems to have all but disappeared since the E-M1 bombshell hit.

Are many of you using the E-P5? Is shutter shock worse on it than the E-M1? Was the E-P5 just an introduction with poor timing given the E-M1 following so quickly on its heels? Is the E-P5 destined to be one of those fine cameras that never gained any significant traction?

I like the Pen style. Has the OMD line doomed the Pen?
