Customer Reviews

Very nice camera with super effective ISVery 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. The lack of a proper handgrip causes the discomfort, so a shoulder or neck strap are a must. Otherwise great little camera with fast and fairly reliable autofocus!The bundled lens is very sharp and easy to focus manually.The EVF is large, bright and sharp but sits very clumsy on top of the nice camera body4buy it! You can get EP5, 17mm 1.8 lens and EVf reconditioned at Oly for $1150.Or buy new oly built in EVF, water proofThis camera has it all; razor sharp pics, instant AF, EVF a dream, 2X2 dials gives total instant control, easy intuitive menu's. And loads of accessories at excellent prices; recently added a 70/150 tele lens (used excellent) for $60.A flash can be off camera triggered by camera's flash. Small compared to DSLR, and can do anything it can do. An article by DP reviews highlighted "shutter shock". Speeds of 1/50 to 1/200 could produce soft focused pics. I talked with Oly people, their reps couldn't reproduce this and neither can I. Maybe DP reviews got a "defective camera" or some soft ware glitch but my camera doesn't have "shutter shock" and works perfectly fine. The camera comes with a one year warranty; you can buy a additional two year contract for $80. Most credit cards extend the original warranty for an extra year with out any cost. I have been so pleased with the build, quality of the camera, the design and placement of the camera's controls. And the vast amount of lenses available make this the ideal camera. I got an exceptional deal through Amazon. I couldn't be more pleased.5Small, light with big performance.This is a keeper. It's quiet, has all the features you could ever need and takes beautiful pictures. I use it with the 12-40mm pro lens and this combination has awesome image quality with beautiful saturation and colors with subtle gradations. The learning curve requires a little patience, but it's worth it. It's even better with the VF-4 electronic viewfinder which is clear and bright even in low light. I love this camera!5Review from a pro.To qualify myself I have a successful photography business and I have shot every level of camera out there. I shoot weddings, commercial work, event photography, family portraits, and much more all with M43 cameras. Was a Nikon guy until 3 years ago but 3 Nikons with back focus issues pointed me towards the M43 revolution. I have never looked back and I have owned about every Olympus M43 camera they make. I currently shoot with the E-M1 and E-M5 and my results have been beyond stellar. There are currently no APS-C cameras nor Full Frame cameras that interest me in the least bit because my results with Olympus has been so spectacular. The sharpness in focus with these cameras are second to none. That brings me to the E-P5. I have to say after several days use, it is my favorite M43 camera ever and that says a lot being that I own the E-M1. This camera is amazingly solid, controls are very logical and everything works as a rangefinder style body should. This camera even more so than my other Olympus cameras truly puts the fun back in photography. This camera is just plain sexy and the image quality is amazing. I love hearing people say but when I zoom in 500% the 43 sensor just doesn't cut it. I say you are so beyond anal and need to focus on artistry not pixels. Why are photographers so afraid of grain? Remember when you used to pick a film for its graininess to add to the artistic value? That being said, the grain is so extremely well controlled and has an amazing film quality to it. This has been the case with about every Olympus camera I have owned. I am so glad I picked this camera over the GX7 and the VF-4 is a must. Buy this camera if you want the best bang for your buck with unreal IQ and portability. To show you what these cameras can do search Brock Best Photography on Google to see my work. If you buy this camera you won't be sorry.Update:This camera has truly become my favorite Olympus camera. I have put thousands of images through it (professionally) and it has been ultra reliable never letting me down. You would not believe the rave reviews it gets from people on looks and it strikes up conversations everywhere I go.5Perfect Adventure CameraRecently I sold my trusty Nikon D300 and wanted to Upgrade to something a little more modern and compact, but retain the interchangeable lens systems. I first chose a Canon EOS-M and was very disappointed. It was slow and just douldn't ge thte pictures I wanted. I gave it to my girlfriend and started the hunt for another. Luckily a buddy of mine showed me this guy. I checked reviews and bought it as well as a 40-150 zoom lens for a 3 week trip around Argentina.In short it was amazing. It was small enough to handle and bring everywhere. We went show-shoeing, hiking, horseback riding, cycling, skiing and on a street art tour. It performed great in all conditions. I was able to swap lens on horseback in under 30 seconds and quickly take shots in the snow/rain without worry. The screen is fantastic and great for use in the field. The viewfinder was also a huge benefit over my EOS-M, even though it is not as nice a real one on a DSLR.The only issue I had was the dial for the shot types gets jostled easily and you need to double check it is still on the same setting when you pull the camera out. Mostly just user error on my part and getting used to the new interface.I am looking forward to buying some new lenses and taking it out around San Francisco and northern California.5Superb cameraProsTakes fantastic picturesVery well madeCompact and much easier to carry than a full size DLSR OR FF mirrorlessFunctions can be extensively customizedWorks well at low temperatures (0-10 below Fahrenheit)Good battery lifeImage stabilization is fantastic.ConsBuilt in flash is anemic.Heavy for its sizeControl menu system needs to be re-thought.5Amazing camera!Love this camera! It takes such sharp pictures. The features were easy to figure out. I keep meaning to look at the manual, but i haven't gotten there yet. I've found most of what I need easily and this is the first Olympus I've owned - also the first SLR. I love that you can custom program all the buttons to do be whatever you want them to be. So handy! I set one of them to be a one-touch between auto and manual focus.The lenses I've been using the most are the 17mm f1.8 (and wow the amazing shots you'll get at night!) and the 14-42mm zoom lens - this is the every day lens I use. I also found a Rokinon 7.5mm fisheye that takes great shots. I bought a 40-150mm zoom, but I actually haven't had an opportunity to use it yet.One thing I didn't realize (but should have - many reviews tell you) is that the focal length is doubled on this camera since it's a 4/3. I didn't know much about this since it was my first SLR, but for example the 14-42mm lens is actually the equivalent of a 28-84mm. That's the main reason I got the fisheye - so I could get pics of things closer to me since I was automatically zoomed in on everything.5An All-Round Good CameraI've resisted the Olympus brand for many years because of their crazy hard menu system. Had one a few years back, and that camera was impossible!But Olympus digicams have matured and so *ahem* have I. My Canon gear is getting heavier by the week. So I began looking at the various compact mirrorless systems, reading both professional and user reviews, and looking at sample images. While reviewers of the Oly cameras generally agree that the menus are complex, the number of options available in the menus and the ability to customize settings were certainly attractive. More than that, I liked the color rendering, clarity and dynamic range produced by the Oly micro four-thirds cameras.So I bit. And I'm pretty glad I did.What I like:Outstanding image qualityEffective in-body 5-axis image stabilizationExcellent lenses in a great selectionManageable weightBuilt in flashTilting LCD screenBlazing fast autofocusBeautiful colorsDynamic range, especially shooting raw. LOTS of latitude for pushing shadows and recovering highlights, although those aren't really a problem.Clean images through ISO 2000, with 3200 and 6400 actually quite usableVery decent video (not using it much so can't comment in depth)What needs improving:Menus - settings are still unnecessarily complicated (but not as confusing as eight years ago)Touch screen functionality a bit limited - pinch zoom would be nice in playbackLCD impossible to see in direct sunlight - had to buy pricey electronic viewfinder VF-4 for outdoor shootingNot the easiest-to-handle shapeNeeds chromatic aberration correction (though the lenses I have don't really cause much CA)I'm happy with the PEN E-P5. So happy that, after 35 years as a Canon girl, I just may be ready to throw in the Canon towel.4fantastic little camerafirst 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.i bought this camera as a replacement for a broken olympus omd em5. i also bought the vf-4. i prefer the rangefinder style and found the hump on the em5 to be obtrusive. also this camera has a faster top shutter - 1/8000 - which allows wide open shooting in broad daylight. neither the em10 nor the em5 have that. the vf-4 is notably better than the evf on the omd twins as well.picture quality: people argue both sides of micro 43 vs aps. i am quite happy with the images from this particular sensor. i shoot raw and can't comment on jpegs. i get very good minimal noise images at iso 3200. these images are comparable to what i get from my fuji x100. i am not a pixel peeper.bottom line for me is the size advantage of micro 43 is measurable (some of the APS bodies may be about the same size but equivalent APS lenses are a good bit bigger). and while i'm on lenses, the selection for m43 is phenomenal. lots of choices, high quality, and reasonable prices.operational speed is amazing. this camera is dslr fast.flip down touch screen is an extremely useful tool. every serious camera should have this feature.build and handling are great. i love the 'twin dial' operation. the camera just feels and looks great.menus are complicated, but coming from the omd i was already acclimated. the key is the super control panel or 'scp'. once that is set up just press 'ok' and all secondary functions are accessed - focus type, metering, drive, flash settings, iso etc - for easy adjustments.built in flash is great. with a fast lens one shouldnt need flash for darkish conditions, but i use a lot of fill flash on sunny/shadowy days. i missed having built in flash on the omd. the one here is very nice and it's output is easy to tweek on the fly via the scp.my biggest gripe about the camera is the lack of a built in finder. the attachable vf4 evf is dynamite, and besides, for many conditions i'm comfortable composing on the flip down screen. but the whole notion of evf as attachable add on accessory is not an elegant or ideal solution. bottom line, a camera of this size and price should have a built in evf - sony does it, fuji does it, panasonic does it. hell my old circa 1968 film pen f is about the same size and even IT has a thru the lens finder. olympus you really need to get with it here.micro 43 is great system for many uses, and the ep5 is the best micro 43 camera for me. however the price is high for what it is, and the lack of a built in evf is regrettable.4Best "Kid Camera" I've ever used!I'm an enthusiast photographer. My usual camera is a Canon 5D II with various L glass, but it's large, and I wanted to get a smaller kit mainly to take pictures of my 1-year-old son, and also for light travel photograph. The PEN E-P5 is an amazing camera for this purpose for a few reasons.1. It has an amazingly quick startup time. Your kid starts doing something cute, you don't want to miss the shot while your camera starts up or comes out of standby mode.2. Autofocus is amazingly fast and accurate. I use the Olympus fast glass (17mm, 25mm, 45mm 1.8) and it nails it time and again, even wide open.3. You can get fast glass with it, which is a must for cute kids pics4. 11 frames per second!5. Flippy screen on the back helps me hold the camera low at kid-eye-level, rather than laying on the ground to get the shot.6.
