Might just as well add the difference and get the OM-D M5 and have a little more camera plus like another member stated, have the ability to use the electronic viewfinder and external flash at the same time. Another plus is that the M5 comes with an external flash for the hot shoe. I'm thinking that flash has to be a tad better than my pop up on my E-PL2.
All built in flash are weak. They are only good for a filler and acting as a master for off camera. My DSLR's flashes is not much better then my epl1 flash.
But you also have to consider most people do not care about a EVF. That is why only 1 nex has it. The rest do not even have that option.
