Product Description

Feature 01
To enlarge, please click on the image.

Unmistakeably PEN, unequivocally premium.

Inspired by the now-legendary PEN-F camera that launched in 1963, the E-P5 features many of its retro design hallmarks such as the distinctive kink along the top edge, or the metallic front section of the new E-P5 silver version with its unmistakeable “Olympus - PEN” inscription. But that’s just half the story: The E-P5 has also been given a thorough design upgrade for the 21st century that’s unmistakeably PEN and undeniably premium.

Feature 04
To enlarge, please click on the image.

FAST AF with advanced capabilities.

As well its ultra-fast autofocusing credentials, the FAST AF in the E-P5 also brings other impressive qualities with it. Take minute details to new extremes with Super Spot AF, which is capable of focusing on an even more specific part of your image than even a D-SLR camera – all with your fingertip. Meanwhile, the high-speed release time lag mode reduces the time between shutter release and exposure to a split-second minimum – to capture even the fastest-moving subjects.

Feature 02
To enlarge, please click on the image.

High quality meets high speed.

The E-P5 delivers the same image quality as the groundbreaking Olympus OM-D, for hotshots that match the top-end imaging standards of D-SLRs. It also features a mechanical shutter speed of up to 1/8000s – just perfect for bringing out the very best in high-speed lenses for full defocusing effects in bright shooting conditions, or for freezing fast-moving subjects from flowing water to the flapping wings of a hummingbird.

Feature 05
To enlarge, please click on the image.

Always split-seconds from key settings.

Ergonomically positioned for comfort and speed, the two dials on the E-P5 let you expand the realm of your creative expression: Simply adjust aperture and exposure, then – by changing the function of both dials with a quick flick of the lever – adjust ISO and white balance with exactly the same action. The E-P5 also gives you incredible scope to customise this lever for your own style of photography – letting you jump straight to your most-used functions to get just the results you want in the shortest possible time.

Feature 03
To enlarge, please click on the image.

A whole WiFi world of possibilities.

Thanks to its built-in WiFi capabilities, the E-P5 offers a whole host of advanced and convenient features made possible from a connection between your camera and smartphone. See your camera’s live view right on your phone’s touchscreen and even shoot at a distance by releasing the shutter from your phone. You can even use this feature with a timer countdown to easily include yourself in group photos. Assign GPS data to your photos, or send your selected shots straight to your phone and then share them with your friends. It’s incredibly simple and fast with built-in WiFi.

Style Name: Body OnlyColour Name: Silver Verified Purchase
These are expensive cameras, there's no doubt about it.

I loved my e-p3, it's been through the wars and come back fighting, I'm just an amateur, but I've won a good award with the e-p3 and sold the prize to get this upgrade. I'm not disappointed.

Main points for me / basically differences:
The tilting screen is nice, personally I was happier before as I worry it might just be another thing to break, and bomb proof is more important to me than a tilting screen, it also doesn't feel quite as sensitive. But it's bright and fine and the hinge is well made, not flimsy at all. I have no complaints.
The body is pretty much the same size as the e-p3 so with a pancake you can squeeze it in your back jeans pocket. It's tight, but ok enough that I do it regularly.
Silver version is prettier, probably a bad thing as you don't want to 'care' too much about getting your camera bashed.
Live exposure is great, not a gimmick. For long exposures it's useful, I don't do light painting, but I'm sure it'd be great for that too.
Wireless connectivity is more useful that I thought.
There's definitely a difference with the new sensor.
Stabilisation on video basically works now. E-p3 was terrible.
I don't have a problem with the video, I've used it for a few things and have no complaints, that said I've never used anything else so don't have anything to compare it to and I know that people prefer lower fps which isn't in there. Read about this if it's important to you.
I've not had it long, so there are no doubt going to be draw backs and failings that I've not spotted, and plus points I've not come to appreciate yet.
In summary though, if you can afford it, this is the most amazing bit of kit. I've loved my e-p3 and the e-p5 is off to a flying start.

Style Name: Body & 17mm Lens & VF-4 ViewfinderColour Name: Black
NO VIEWFINDER
=============
You can add one if you so wish. But it is a costly addition, almost the price of a second hand car. Olympus VF-4 Electronic Viewfinder for MFT Cameras with Accessory Port

LOOKS
=====
It has the retro aesthetic that several camera companies have aimed at. It also has DSLR image quality, all in a lovely, small, compact body.

PERFECT?
========
Not quite. I couldn't get the wifi-thing to work with my iPhone despite trying for three days*
The Autofocus is fast and responsive and the look and feel, well it feels a luxury piece of kit.
Although it comes at a luxury price.

(*three days- well it was actually two hours but felt like three days)

TOUCHSCREEN
===========
A nice but unnecessary addition.

DO YOU DESERVE A TREAT
======================
The Olympus Pen will not disappoint.
Responsive.
Looks nice to look at.
Feels nice in the hand.

IS THERE A BUT
==============
No buts, the performance is superb and aesthetically rather pleasing to look at.
But I think the viewfinder accessory is expensive.
I can live without it.
If you can too, I can wholeheartedly recommend it.

Style Name: Body & 14-42mm LensColour Name: Black Verified Purchase
I bought this in the January sale deals at a significant discount. While I mainly use Nikon DLSRs I had been hankering after a smaller unobtrusive compact but full featured camera for some time. I have used Olympus in the past (OM-1, OM-2 and OM-4) but switched to Nikon when finally digital appeared to come of age. At one time I had an original Olympus Pen (the half-frame film camera) but sold it because the half frame quality was not quite sufficient compared with full frame.

See the reviews on-line for this camera (dpreview has an excellent full review). The only downside to me would be cost but at the discount I got it for I consider it good value, which is why I give it the full five stars. The quality of the 16 megapixel images exceeded my expectations and similarly the high ISO quality up to 1600 ISO is entirely acceptable. It is not a Nikon D7100 nor a D800 but for something dinky and high quality to carry around with full controls for the traditional photographer I highly recommend it. A VF-4 finder is a recommended but pricy accessory although not essential to enjoy using this camera (see my review for the VF-4). The best camera is the camera that you have with you and you are likely to have this camera with you because it is so compact: just like the Pens of old.

Downsides, for there are downsides, include 1) the Olympus menu system is messy and not brilliant and you need to go to the menus for some controls, and 2) the charger is not as good or efficient as, say, the Nikon chargers. But I have found the battery life OK for a days shooting without a spare.

Upsides, beside what I have already said... For a Nikon user, you can make it very like a Nikon DSLR to use. It has front and back control wheels and you can customise the buttons: e.g. I use the back movie button to control continuous focus just like I do with the AF-L button on the back of my Nikons and the function button to control ISO.

Style Name: Body & 17mm Lens & VF-4 ViewfinderColour Name: Black Verified Purchase
I was looking for a m 4/3rds camera to replace my ageing, yet much loved, Panasonic Lumix GF1.
After a period of research I decided upon the EP5; the IQ, ease of usage, specs, build quality and price point all made this the stand out winner for 'my' needs, i.e. an everyday camera that can handle the general range of conditions under which I tend to shot, i.e. street, social gatherings, low light situations and travel.
I was also attracted to the EVF & the 17mm lens included with the bundle, both items I am more then happy to have as additions to my kit.

The EVF V. 4 is a great addition, increasing the EP5's flexibility & usage- handy when you need it, yet comfortably stored away when not.
The 17mm 1.8 lens is a firm favourite, providing that much loved focal length for street shooters - it's fast, sharp and great for manual focusing... esp. now the focus peaking on the EP5 is so easy to access.

I am a firm fan of olympus cameras (owning the OMD EM5 & a TG2) finding their usage, IQ and build quality perfect for my needs.
So far, the EP5 has exceeded all my expectations and I would highly recommend it.
