Excerpt: Camera is fine and takes good pictures but has a huge contra=> it doesn't comes with the viewfinder and to buy one costs about $200 so in reality the price is not such good deal i wish it had come with the viewfinder
Summary: Pros: Touchscreen interface. Tons of customization options. Great lens selection. Decent image quality. Cons: Build quality is sub-par. Subjective, but the camera is quite ugly. Image quality is a bit disappointing (it's good, but not as good as reviews lead you to believe). LCD is horrible.
Excellent camera, poor body design and warranty process.

Summary: For the first year I had this camera, it was spectacular. Great pictures, full-featured, and easy to stow for light-pack trips. Unfortunately, the shutter button *fell off* about a month ago, and is now MIA.
Summary: The olympus E-PL5 that I ordered showed a black camera grip pad however the camera has no grip pad at all contrary to the camera shown in all illustrations. The camera is good quality as I have been a user of the Olympus 4/3 cameras since they first hit the market owning the EP2 and the OMD 5.
