And about M4/3

It's good to read this account. As I mentioned above, I have always preferred to use an LCD screen and, with my impending move over to M4/3, I intended to go for either an Olympus EP-L or the new EP-7. I'd been wondering, though, whether I should hedge my bets and settle for an EM10 but finding a recommendation from someone with several Pen models has reassured me. I like the EP-L's size and looks and the results seem more than acceptable, if Robin Wong's pictures with the 17mm and 45mm f1.8 lenses are anything to go by.

With the early E-PL models there was the ability to attach an optional EVF to a few different models. But on later models that ability disappeared, so it is screen or nothing.

Meanwhile the E-M10 models do have that SLR shape with an EVF built-in.

I grew up on the early E-PL1 so got used to its menu structure, now with E-P5 with slightly more complex but familiar menus I am happy. Also have the E-M10 Mk2 but as it has that EVF I don't favour it, apart for if and when I think a fully electronic shutter is needed.

I do randomly maintain some scrappy notes on some of the older Olympus Pens at http://homepages.ihug.com.au/~parsog/olyepl1/01-epl1-menu.html

Of more interest would be my timeline at http://homepages.ihug.com.au/~parsog/olyepl1/80-Oly-timeline.html which may help sort out some of the more important features of the various models.
