Olympus E-PL5 Pen Camera – Featured User Review

Camera Reviews Featured Mirrorless Olympus User Reviews

Thanks to Heather S for her Olympus E-PL5 Pen camera user review. Her review was selected as a Featured User Review because it’s well-written with plenty of detail and she represents the perfect Olympus E-PL5 buyer – a point-and-shoot photographer looking to move up to an unintimidating but high-performance interchangeable lens camera. And the E-PL5 is just that. It uses the same 16-megapixel sensor as our 2012 Camera of the Year, the Olympus OM-D E-M5, so it has the same excellent image quality and much of the same performance – only it costs about half as much as the OM-D.

I was looking for a higher-quality camera than a typical point and shoot, but that would have the options and capabilities of a DSLR that I could grow into…

I’m the point-and-shooter aspiring to be camera geek and the E-PL5 is a great fit for me…(read more)
