Am I crazy to consider E-P5 instead of E-M1?

Re: Am I crazy to consider E-P5 instead of E-M1?

I think that, if you're concerned about size, the E-P5 is probably a solid choice. I have the E-M1 and had the E-M5 for a year. I really don't see much meaningful difference in image quality. However, the E-M5 was simply too small for my hands without a grip and I'm smitten with the E-M1's size and handling. Basically, I'd choose the E-M1 for the build, grip and customizability, but not necessarily for the minor IQ improvements. The E-P5 is smaller without the viewfinder...but with it is almost as big and lacks the, for me at least, the vastly improved handling. But if the E-P5 works for you, there are some great deals to be had right now.
