E-pl7 - vs. - e-p5 - iq

How the E-P5 compares to the E-PL7 in terms of image quality, color, noise, dynamic range, etc.?

I doubt you could tell them apart. If they don't have exactly the same sensor, then it must be pretty close.

Re: E-pl7 - vs. - e-p5 - iq

Anything from the original OMD onwards will be very similar. Only the EM-1 seems to have a different sensor (Panasonic, not Sony) - that's been done to death on other forums, but for all practical purposes there's very little difference.

If you're looking at the Olympus sale of the E-P5 (very cheap in the US, at the moment), then bear in mind it has far better IBIS - that can make a bigger difference to your photos. Otherwise, the E-PL7 is excellent value.

I use an E-P5 as my "walk about" system. It really works well and the twin control wheels suit my needs perfectly.

Re: E-pl7 - vs. - e-p5 - iq

E-PL7 has TruePic VII whereas E-P5 only has TruePic VI.
I am not sure how much difference that will make?

Look for the ergonomics to make your choice on this one as the images will be virtually identical.

While the E-P5 is the current "flag ship" PEN, I expect to see something new this year.

That may well see a few E-P5s up for sale.

Well, I have an E-P5 I could sell, it has extremely low shutter count (I can advise exactly if required) it's in black and like new. Also have a VF4 for sale.
