Even the PM2

I am pushing past the boundaries of this thread, I am sure--and I haven't read the 6 pages of responses. But for $1000 the highest picture quality might well come from this combination:

E-PL5 -- $460

Panasonic-Leica 25/1.4 -- $520

VF-2 viewfinder -- $100 (used e-Bay)

Just over a $1000 I reckon. Add a Olympus 40-150 for another $125 and you have normal and tele  covered, what you need minus wide angle. Keep in mind that a good lens is worth investing in; camera bodies come and go.

The E-PM2 is a little harder to operate, but as good as the E-M5(without 5 axis IBIS) and E-PL5.  Like you said you can get the VF-2 to use with it.  Add a pocketfull of pancakes and you get a very portable system with very high quality.
