  • Excerpt: I admit, the autofokos was slow in 2009 and in 2015 measures it is dead slow. The menu is made for engineers - NOT humans. fortunately I am an engineer ;-) If i did not had one over the last 5 years - I would buy one today.

  • Excerpt: I bought one of these as a bin-end after it had been discontinued. It was a whole heap better than my Ricoh compact but the shutter shock issue meant it was pretty random if I got sharp enough images. I tried all the tips on the www, like new firmware, turning off IS but it still didn't solve it.

My first time owning a camera over $125 and I love what it can do

Robin J Kim, Amazon
12 March 2013
  • Summary: I don't usually spend more than $125 on a camera, but I was tired of blurry pictures (I like to take action shots and shots in the dark without using a flash). I was blessed to catch this camera body at under $300 on amazon.

  • Excerpt: I use this fantastic cam exclusively with the panasonic 20mm f1.7 lens. As a -have always with you cam- is outstanding and it grows on you as time goes by. I liked the GF1 from Panasonic but the fact it has not a built in stabilization made me opt for the Pen. I don't regret my choice.

This camera body is a hidden gem

fair review, Amazon

  • Summary: The Pen E-P1 may be older, but it is far from long-in-the-tooth. In fact, it is packed with features that a user can utilize and customize in ways that are surprisingly useful.

Missing Viewfinder

Sean S., Newegg
10 February 2012
  • Summary: Despite "Optical Viewfinder" being in the title of this product, and the finder being within the pictures, no viewfinder was present in my box. Contacted support, and they said accessories aren't guaranteed for refurbished products.
  • Pros: Great camera
  • Cons: No viewfinder

  • Excerpt: I bought this as a bundle deal for a good price. I like it's true to history no flash and great build quality and metal finish. It has a real camera look and feel to it where there is a feeling if the back popped open you would see a role of 35.
