A good street camera needs a tilt-only screen though. I doubt the E-M5iii will get anything other than a swivel screen.

BTW - I spotted a Panasonic GX800 in Dixons at the airport on Mon morning for 249 incl a 12-32 lens. Sell the lens for 100 and you have an excellent street camera (when fitted with a 17mm lens) for 150!

I've grown to appreciate fully flippy screens for street photography - it sure as hell makes portrait format images easier. It doesn't bother me either way these days. I agree it makes the visual impact of the camera a bit greater.

Most people shoot street these days in landscape, but why always follow the Webb-Myerowitz crowd? Diane Arbus is just one of the great street photographers of the past who took a high proportion of images in portrait.

Yes, that's a good deal. The 12-32 is pretty good, actually (or my copy is, anyway: one hears of some copy variation). It's wonderful as a tiny travel zoom, and it's also a good IR lens.

Re: E-M5 mk iii - same sensor as E-M1ii ?

I agree. I had the E-30 that had the screens like we have today. Then the E-PL1 and E-PL5, and E-M10. they all had the tilting screen, at first I was not a fan because the screen was always exposed, and I was worried it would be damaged. I put protectors on, and never had a problem. I came to like the tilt only screens, as you say very handy for quick street snaps. Now I find the screen on the E-M1 to much of a pain to use for that...I have it stowed most of the time and review settings SCP and photos in the EVF.

Ooops, yes I do realize the E-PL1 did not have a moveable screen.

Screens are very personal, and I do appreciate that, so there's no doubt that a flip-or-fold-out screen like some of the Fujis have is the best of both worlds (as long as it doesn't make the whole body too bulky).

As others have said, there is nothing wrong with 16 or 20 MP. For me its all about high ISO and AF speed/accuracy. Oh.. and a tilting screen, preferably OLED.
