  • Conclusion: Olympus E-P1 Micro Four Thirds system camera The Olympus E-P1 has made a daring move. The E-P1 is in many ways a very special camera. First of all, its appearance; retro and modern at the same time. For me, its design is as successful as the retro-design of the Volkswagen Beetle or the Fiat 500.

Olympus Pen E-P1 Review

What Digital Camera
24 July 2009
  • Summary: Though not aimed at the budget buyer, the Olympus E-P1 is not overly expensive. It is pitched as a premium product and will undoubtedly attract attention due to its looks, but considering it costs £699 with the 14-42mm, it is nearly half the price of the Panasonic Lumix GH1, and just over £200 more...

  • Cons: Slow autofocus, No viewfinder

Olympus Pen E-P1 digital camera

Pocket Lint
13 July 2009
  • Conclusion: The E-P1 looks hard to justify at £700 (and a significant further price increase needs to be added when the optional lenses, viewfinder and flash are factored in) given it is not a DSLR but priced like one.
  • Pros: Image quality, handling, super control panel, comprehensive, creative feature set, good dust reduction system, retro styling, build, lenses
  • Cons: No (built-in) viewfinder, no built-in flash, price

Olympus E-P1 Review

24 January 2013
  • Conclusion: Wat echter recht tegenover alle rationele afwegingen staat, is het gevoel dat je bij deze camera hebt. Je kunt haast niet anders dan van deze camera houden. Er is iets wat de camera heel bijzonder maakt. Niet alleen het uiterlijk, maar iets ongrijpbaars.

  • Summary: Olympus E-P1 – аппарат, занимающий промежуточное положение между компактами и зеркалками: у него небольшие габариты, но крупная матрица и сменные объективы.

  • Pros: Уникальный дизайн в стиле ретро., Великолепное качество исполнения – очень прочный корпус, все органы управления работают четко., Необычный, но удачный дизайн управляющих «колес» – цилиндра и кольца., Сменные объективы – возможность установить оптимальный., Объектив 14-42 небольшой, но качественн...
  • Cons: Медленный автофокус (в сравнении с зеркальными камерами)., Нет оптического видоискателя., Нет встроенной вспышки., Нет подсветки автофокуса., Невысокое разрешение монитора (230000 точек)., Монитор не поворотный., Ограниченный набор объективов стандарта Микро-4/3., При установке на штатив блокируе...

  • Excerpt: Igaz, a Panasonic már korábban piacra dobta a maga variánsait , de az egy éve bejelentett Mikro Négyharmad rendszer első igazi képviselőjének az Olympus E-P1, azaz a Pen fényképezőgép számít.
  • Pros: profi képek, kreatív funkciók, kis méret.
  • Cons: néha nehézkes élességállítás, átnézeti kereső hiánya.
