Re: Fast, cheap MFT camera for wife... (answering several of the questions)

Thank you for all of the suggestions.   To answer a few of the questions:

1) AF on my E-M5 is plenty fast.

2) My wife cares only about capturing the memory.  She will shoot in P or green square mode.  She isn't a pixel peeper.

3) I thought about upgrading to the E-M1 and giving her my E-M5.  But I don't think there is enough advantage for the E-M1 over the E-M5.  Perhaps with whatever Olympus comes out with next year....

4) That my wife doesn't want the fanciest camera speaks to her character, not the fact she is female.

5) She has said that she would like a smaller camera than the dSLR, she just doesn't want to give up being able to get the shot.

I looked at the E-PM2.  It looks like it may be an excellent choice.
