From the manufacturer
See the beauty. Meet the beast.
The Olympus PEN-F is one of Olympus’ extraordinary cameras. Fine materials and timeless design combine to create a modern piece of craftsmanship.
But this camera is far more than just beautiful. It is the result of 80 years of camera history and technical innovations. A real beauty as soon as you see it. A beast under the surface.
Craftsmanship and design – Smart is the new sexy
Fine materials and timeless design combine to create a modern piece of craftsmanship. From the first moment you touch the extraordinary textured body of the Olympus PEN-F this camera will create a feeling of something special that will stay with you forever. The pure expression of Olympus design.
Creative Dial – The strength of innovation
With the Creative Dial you get direct access to four creative functions. Two of these have never been used before in combination with a camera. With the Monochrome Profile Control you can set different effects – like the Monochrome-Filter-Effect that imitates classical photo filters and also includes a gradation curve. And with the Colour Profile Control, you can change the colour saturation of 12 different colours.
Image Quality – Capture the moment in first class
Thanks to the 5-axis image stabilisation you can work over a lengthy period with low sensitivities, so that it is much easier to take a photo without blurring. Added to that, the image sensor introduced by Olympus with the PEN-F benefits the image quality. Twenty million pixels ensure a resolution that caters for every need.
High Visibility Viewfinder – Seek and find
The first Olympus PEN with an electronic viewfinder in a rangefinder style – the High Visibility Viewfinder. The advantage: the effects of all features like the Art Filters or the Monochrome Profile Control can be examined before you take a photo with a certain setting.
Everyone appreciates a camera that takes a picture the very moment you press the shutter button. That is why the response time of the Olympus PEN-F is stunningly short. And since we all like to compete: no other camera in this category has a shorter release time.
The vari-angle display let you shoot a photo from every perspective and ensures a comfortable handling.
Built-in Wi-Fi and Olympus Image Share
The built-in Wi-Fi and the Olympus Image Share app make it possible for you to operate the camera remotely using a smartphone. But that’s not all: Release the shutter, change settings, transfer your images to your smartphone or tablet and share stunning photos with the whole world instantly.
High quality leather camera bag
This slim and padded camera bag is manufactured from genuine leather and a perfect fusion of timeless design and a contemporary response to functionality. A large flap on the front makes it easy to take out the camera.

But I am well satisfied with the excellent results I have obtained so far, and glad I chose this camera with the really good 17mm lens. I have used the camera with a Pana kit lens, and this camera is showing up the deficiencies of that lens, not apparent on the Pana camera. I get the feeling that this camera really needs the superior optics of prime lenses.
I would buy a guide book to the camera, but the only one available is in German. There is a guide to the menu system, but it has poor reviews and is not really what I want anyway.
The Pen-F is an improvement on the E-M10, having 20 Mp instead of 16, and having a raft of in-camera shooting features that make it a more flexible camera. Its rangefinder-type viewfinder makes the camera lower on top – the pyramidal viewfinder on the E-M10 does take up space – and the dials are laid out in a manner that seems more intuitive.
I can’t deny that I’m attracted to this vintage camera look, and in my hands, it feels better than the E-M10. It’s a tad wider (6mm), and lower (10mm, because of the different viewfinder), but the main part of the body is higher than the E-M10. And, while it’s 9mm thinner, it feels like it’s thicker. At 427g, compared to 396g – body only – it feels heftier, but in a good way. It feels more balanced, more evenly weighted than the E-M10.
There are a number of features that make the Pen-F an improvement on the E-M10, such as a higher-resolution viewfinder, which makes a big difference in the way I look at what I shoot. I rarely use the back-panel LCD to take pictures, and the Pen-F has an articulated LCD that you can shut, showing a faux leather back that looks more like on old film camera (and stays out of the way, and uses less battery).
One interesting feature is the front dial that lets you quickly switch among color modes: you can go from natural color to one of three monochrome modes, and you can use a number of artistic filters. I’m not a fan of the latter, but I do like shooting black and white. All the reviews I’ve seen highlight not only the quality of the monochrome renders, but suggest that you don’t even need to shoot RAW, since the camera’s JPEGs are so good.
The 5-axis image stabilization is an improvement on the E-M10’s 3-axis version, but the biggest difference I find in my first photos is the shutter. It’s softer, requires less push to actuate, and the camera moves a lot less. It’s also quieter; the E-M10’s shutter is fairly noisy.
The camera may not be the easiest to hold, as the front right of the device has no protrusion, and I might get a grip. Olympus sells one, of course, at a high price, but there are third-party grips. I’m not that worried about dropping it – I always use a strap – but it might be a bit easier to use in odd positions. There is, however, a curved thumb grip that is more prominent than that of the E-M10, which helps keep the camera stable.
The shutter is buttery smooth, it’s fairly quiet, and the viewfinder is extremely fast. It’s easy to shoot a number of photos in succession manually, and the auto-focus keeps up very well.
I've had this camera for about six months, and have a half-dozen Olympus lenses, which makes it quite versatile. (I prefer primes over zooms.) I also have a Fujifilm X100F, and the two cameras are similar, with the exception of the fact that the latter has a fixed lens. If I had to choose between the two, I would opt for the flexibility of the Pen-F, but the X100F has plenty of features that I like as well.
In the end, this camera is for someone upgrading from an Olympus OM camera, or just getting started with the Olympus system. I think you can't go wrong with this camera, it's compact, easy to use, and shoots great photos.
First of all, the key features I like.
It is light, so very very light
The lenses are in comparison to me EOS 5D Mk II very light
The camera is compact
These matter as my Canon kit is so heavy and so bulky I often do not take it out with me and so miss great shots.
The menu system on the camera is intuitive and easy to understand.
The 17mm lens (basically multiply by X2 for full frame SLR equivalency) is sharp and still allows for differential focusing and blurry backgrounds.
The fold out screen folds shut with the screen on the inside which will protect it well from knocks and and scratches.
So far I have found the camera a joy to use.
I am still learning the more advanced features but, in camera image stabilisation and focus stacking are just two of many many features that make this an awesome camera.
The key difference with the Pen is the ability to do so much in camera and then view on your phone or iPad.
The features really do make this an ideal bloggers camera.
The images are sharp, impressively sharp and so far I cannot find any fault.
