Excellent camera but so far very unreliable

  • Summary: I've been using this camera body for about 6 months now and overall am satisfied but there are big reliability issues in my opinion. I switched to Micro 4/3 after years of using Panasonic compact travel zoom point and shoot cameras (ZS/TZ series) previously so will be reviewing from that perspective.

Capable Compact, Entry Level DSLR Killer

  • Excerpt: Bought this camera as a more capable travel camera given that Nikon D7000 is really to heavy to take everywhere and photos coming out of the phone were good, but technically inadequate.With EP-5, surprises keep on coming. Image quality and sharpness (With the middle-of-the road M.Zuiko 14-42mm EZ lens) are surprisingly good and comparable with D7000 used with a third-party lens.
  • Pros: Easy to Use, Fast Shutter Speed, Good in Low Light, Great Resolution, Large Clear LCD, Small / Compact
  • Cons: Short Battery Life

Questionable Quality Control

  • Excerpt: A beautiful camera and lens combo however the build quality is less than desired. Parts coming loose so I just reurned it. I have had two other Oly micro four thirds cameras and something small came loose. Oly repair service is just awful. I sent an EPL5in and it took three months to service and return.It's a shame, because of QC and poor service, I will not be buying another Olympus regardless of the many positives
  • Pros: Easy to Use, Image Quality, Portability, Small / Compact
  • Cons: Build quality

  • Excerpt: I've been shooting digitally since early 2001. I purchased a 2MP Kodak DCS 520 that year and was amazed. That camera cost me a little over $12,000. Digital advanced quickly during the years following. By 2003 my Kodak had already become obsolete and was replaced with a 6MP Canon D60, which in turn was replaced by a Canon 10D. Back then, a Canon 10D cost a little over $2,400 new. The advancements ... and camera purchases ... continued. Canon 1Ds. Canon 1Ds II. Canon 5D.

  • Excerpt: I finally joined eBay a few weeks back, and this is my first eBay bargain. Before I begin, I'd like to re-state a view I've expressed here before: When Olympus launched this camera, their asking price was absurd. Noting about owning and using this camera has changed this view. I thought the all three OMDs were great value, from the beginning. The pricing of the E-PX line seems a little odd to me.

This is a good small camera.

  • Summary: Good pictures. Effective work with lenses with longer focal length when using the AntiShok "0" s Without a separate viewfinder - not convenient. Ergonomics is not for large hands. No moisture protection. Only slightly better than the functional OM-D Em 5 - could be in the same price category.

  • Excerpt: This is the second in a three-part series about the Olympus Pen E-P5, a mirror-less camera that squeezes just the right amount of pro features into a pocketable package. The first article was called Olympus Pen: Portrait Olympus Pen: Portrait of a Camera of a Camera . Here I take a look at shooting pictures with the E-P5 and trying out some of its features. I took the Pen E-P5 out for a day of shooting. Oh my.
