I would agree with all points with you. I hope the Pen F trial won't hurt my wallet too much.@Tili, the E-P7 has better AF and I believe better video (not sure I don't shoot video). But if you like the articulating screen then the Pen F might suit you better.
It will DEFINITELY suit you better if you use more manual lenses. The "F" lets you load lens data into shot metadata. I only have one manual lens (the 9mm BCL) so it doesn't really make that much difference to me.
But the reality is also that you can get the Pen F used for about the same price as the E-P7 since, in the US anyway, you have to import them. So you can buy and sell the Pen F without really loosing much if you decide it's not for you. Not the case with the E-P7.
I personally have no need for a E-p7 as I've a lx 100 that fills the "point and shoot" / shoot with screen role.
I also tried the Epl-9 (got it very cheap) and yeah.. I don't like it that much. I should give it another chance before selling it.
