The micro four thirds form factor can deliver stunning results, and Olympus make very good cameras. With this particular camera, some of the price being paid is for the cosmetics of the camera, which are important to many customers. Dare I say it, this camera is probably targeted more at the female demographic where a camera has to have the right aesthetic as a fashion accessory as well as a photographic device. So, with that in mind, if you're looking for a micro four thirds Olympus in this price bracket that has more functionality, consider the OM-D EM-10.
The E-PL8 doesn't have an electronic viewfinder - there is an accessory viewfinder for the hotshoe that is an optional extra. There is a hotshoe mini flash included, but no built-in flash. So, no viewfinder with flash photography.
The EM-10 has 5 axis image stabilisation, whereas the E0PL8 has 3 axis. Coming from Sony which has excellent in-body stabilisation, I don't think the 3 axis system is that great, but it's better than nothing.
Video seems to be a bit of an afterthought, so if that's important to you, I'd look elsewhere.
If you're looking for a stylish camera that takes great photos, offers m4/3 lens choices and has plenty of creative auto modes then the E-PL8 may be for you. Just bear in mind that if you're serious about photography, you may outgrow the camera.
