The E-PM2 was announced alongside the more expensive E-PL5, both of which include the excellent 16 megapixel CMOS sensor found within the OM-D E-M5. Basic operation and features between the two cameras are very similar, but the E-PL5 does have a swivel screen that rotates 65 degrees down and 170 degrees up for self-portraits, some extra external controls including a mode dial, and a removable grip. Both cameras also have in-camera RAW develop presets to make the process simpler. There's only a $100 difference between the two and the E-PM2 is a tad smaller and lighter. Image quality on both is about as good as it gets for mirrorless cameras, a wonder for micro 4/3 cameras that historically trailed their APS-C counterparts.
