5.0 out of 5 stars An absolute bargain. Excellent camera, 5 Jun. 2013
This review is from: Olympus E-PM1 Compact System Camera - Black (includes M.ZUIKO Digital 14 -42mm II R Lens) (discontinued by manufacturer) (Camera)
I have owned my E-PM1 for 6 months now and it has been heavily used. It is a micro 4/3 camera that takes interchangeable lenses made by Olympus and Panasonic. I use mine with the Panasonic Lumix G 20mm/F1.7 Pancake Lens which is expensive but brilliant. This combination fits inside a coat pocket and means I have a decent camera with me on every trip. Honestly, the difference in picture quality from this camera with a pancake lens and a compact is beyond compare.

But you don't have to buy expensive lenses to make use of this camera. The kit lens is an absolute wonder and collapses inward when not in use. Pictures made by this combination are very sharp and have superb colour.

The other thing that makes this camera so nice is the speed. It autofocuses faster than my SLR does - not bad for a compact camera.

Downsides, you have to use buttons to change the settings in manual mode, the flash is a fiddly little attachment and there is no viewfinder so you have to shade the screen in bright light. That said, you can buy big flashes and an electronic viewfinder if you want.

I just enjoy having a brilliant camera at a cheap price that can use some of the best lenses around.

Check the customer photos for a side by side size comparison with my Nikon D3100. I sold the Nikon and kept this one as pictures - real world pictures are better with the Olympus.
