Camera World E-P5 Price

Camera World are selling the E-P5 with kit lens for 699.99.
Factor in the free VF-4 offer and this is a good deal.

Re: Camera World E-P5 Price

The E-P5 is a great camera that has been unfortunate in being eclipsed by OM-D models. The recent firmware update has also fixed some of the niggles I originally had.

Ha! Well, if you stuck the EVF on the side instead of the top it would be close!

I know which one I would rather have for a do-it-all camera.

Re: Camera World E-P5 Price

Not sure which I'd have .....I like both....E-P5 and E-M10 are very attractive propositions...I sometimes prefer to use the Pen rather than the OM-D.....so given the option right now I'd buy an E-P5.
Wonder if Camera world will swap my E-P1 and E-PL5 for one.
