It's somewhat affordable and very compact. For about the same price, you can get an Olympus OM-D E-M5 mkii. I have one of those and it's pretty great.

I am not a fan of cameras without a viewfinder, so really not up on all the Olympus models. Have you considered the EM10 or Pen F? The Pen F is a bit pricy in my opinion but the EM10 is really good camera at a great price point. If you need weather sealing, the EM5 is a great option or the EM1 (which is what I shoot). Pretty much, the IQ from any of them is going to be more or less equal except in the Pen F or the EM1mk2 (which both have 20mp sensors compared tot he 16mp sensors of the other cameras).

What's the price difference between these, and what's your budget? By "used" do you mean refurbished and/or with some kind of warranty or straight 3rd-party sale?

Starting a new job next week, which will involve a lot of travel, so I was thinking about upgrading a couple of my cameras soon.

I am very happy with the image quality of my Micro 4/3 Olympus E-PM2, but the touch screen annoys the heck out of me. There are a few newer generations and several feature levels of the Olympus PEN cameras, but the model numbers confuse me. What models might I want to consider that would be a more enthusiast oriented version of the PEN?

The other one to upgrade is my Canon Powershot S90. I had a Powershot S100 for a short time, but it failed with a lens error and since I only paid $100 for it, it would have cost more to fix. I did see a noticeable difference in image quality to the S90. So, the latest and greatest S120, or a used S110?
