Buying E-PL5 or E-M10


I am thinking of purchasing an Olympus camera, there has be some discussions of getting an obsolete E-PL5(still relevant) or new model E-M10(more features). I made a brief summary of the relevant features important to me applicable to both cameras and the decision I should made is based on this summary. There are other features which I may over look, please list them here.

EPL5                         E-M10

ViewFinder                      No                             Yes

WiFi                              No                             Yes

Built-in Flash                   No                             Yes

Peak Focus                    No                             Yes

Current Price                AUD$400(*)                  AUD$656(**)

* Second Hand incl. kit lens

** New from Discount camera shop, no kit lens

Using the above analysis I am incline towards E-M10 provided it does NOT exhibit Shuttle Shock.
