Re: o my word i love my new camera.

Congrats on the new camera Becky, I bought one of those a few weeks ago and I absolutely love it. Even though I'm fortunate to have an office full of top-of-the-line Olympus and Canon equipment, it's the EPL5 that I tend to reach for. It's wonderful to have a tiny but massively powerful camera with me at all times, weighing next to nothing. It's also a great second camera or backup for professional assignments. It seems to offer slightly better IQ than the EM5, which I would guess is down to a more recent processing engine and the lack of a high pass filter. I've also bought the VF3 to keep me going on very bright days, it's good to have the best of both worlds. I will also say that the kit lens which accompanied it is surprisingly good for everyday outings.

Re: o my word i love my new camera.

I have the Toshiba FlashAir card in my E-PL5, which allows me to download images to the iPhone or laptop wirelessly.

It really is a surprisingly good camera.

Have fun with it.
