Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Olympus Pen E-PL5 Compact System Camera - Black (16.1 MP, M.ZUIKO Digital 14 -42mm II R Lens Kit) 3 inch LCD (Electronics)
I was looking for a camera that had all the ability of an SLR but half the size and weight. Unfortunately, it isn't half the weight, but it is far smaller than my E500 with more capability. Regarding the weight, it may weigh the same, but it is much more centered so there is no more strain and pulling on the neck. It takes a little getting used to not having a viewfinder, but that's not so bad.
This camera produces brilliant images and I would be more than happy to recommend it to anyone wanting advice on buying a new camera.
