Compared to Olympus PEN E-PL5 From the point of view of a compact upgrader, the Canon EOS M and Olympus E-PL5 offer two very different propositions. Despite the different sensor size - the 18 Megapixel APS-C sensor in the EOS M is a little larger than the PEN E-PL5's 16 Megapixel Four Thirds sensor - in quality terms there's actually little to choose between them.

Canon EOS-M Review - Ken Rockwell

The E-PL5's fast autofocus makes it suitable for all kinds of photography from street shooting to landscapes and with a library of more than 30 Micro Four Thirds lenses to choose from as well as accessories including electronic and optical viewfinders, an external microphone adapter, macro lighting and Bluetooth transmiter (but no GPS or wifi, unless you use a wifi enabled SD card), it's a good choice for either novices or enthusiasts looking to build a system from scratch.

In terms of native lenses, the PEN E-PL5 is an easy winner, with access to over 30 options from the mature Micro Four Thirds catalogue, compared to just two native lenses for the EOS M at the time of writing - the 18-55mm f3.5-5.6 zoom and 22mm f2 pancake prime. Crucially though, with the EF-EOS M adapter you can mount any EF or EF-S lens on the EOS M and still have full use of AF and all exposure modes. To be fair, the E-PL5 can also accommodate other lenses via an adapter, but the only ones you'll enjoy autofocus with come from the original Four Thirds mount system.
