In the end I got an Olympus PEN E-PL6

Thank you for your comments.

I bought an Olympus PEN E-PL6 in the end. Got in on sale in Denmark for 600 euro, which actually is better than the current PL5 deals I could find. It included:

The only features the PL6 has which the E-PL5 does not:

  • Release Lag-Time:
    Normal or Short can be selected.
  • Interval Shooting:
    Interval time: 1 sec. - 24 hours,
    Number of storable pictures: 99 frames max.
  • Time-Lapse Movie ( Interval Movie ):
    AVI Motion JPEG, 1280 x 720, 10fps

The only physical difference I have noticed, compared to the PL5, is a red ring around the shutter release and the lens mount. Besides that it looks identical to the PL5. I think it looks great, but maybe Olympus is trying to tease Canon a bit, which has a red ring on their high end L lenses
