fantastic little camera

catdaddy, Amazon

  • Summary: first off this camera is probably not for someone who wants to 'point and shoot'. although it can be used like that, and results would be great, there are much more cost effective and appropriate 'point and shoot' oriented cameras out there - for instance the panasonic gm1, gm5, and gf7.

Very nice camera with super effective IS

  • Summary: Very nice camera with super effective IS. Unfortunately, the software crashed couple of times, and then the IS stopped working altogether. I had to reset it every time that happened! Also, The camera in this combo feel surprisingly heavy and is not comfortable to hold over a long period of time.

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: 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.

  • 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 .

  • Excerpt: I've never been infatuated with a camera - or any other piece of gear. That doesn't mean I'm not a gear hound - I am. And I like to think that my purchase decision starts with the practicalities of features + function. But with the Olympus Pen E-P5, I was smitten at first fondling.

Almost great, but...

B. Kiacz, Amazon

  • Summary: After a few hundred images I have mixed feelings and find I still prefer my Olympus E-P1 bodies over this model. I should note that I very rarely shoot video and have not captured any video with this camera. Positives: 1. Love the Focus Peaking.
