Re: Which mirror-less camera to purchase?

I have the EPL5 and the 17mm f2.8, this is plenty fast enough in reasonably lit rooms after dark to take photos of my Grandchildren.

For a faster lens at reasonable price the 45mm f1.8 is a superb lens, but you need a large room to get them in shot. It is fantastic outside in poor light though. I took flashless photos at a family wedding at the evening dance in poor light with this combination and was really pleased with the results.

The EPL5's screen swings to nearly 180 degrees in the up direction, far enough to frame a selfie if that's your thing and in itself is a good camera.
Too many cameras!
E-500, E-510, EPM1, EPL5, EP3, EP5, OM-D E M10, OM-D E M5, Trip 35mm, Samsung WP10 and Panasonic G6 plus lots of lenses many manual focus.
