Fantastic Camera
I had just gotten interested in photography about 2 years ago and wanted a good camera that wouldn't overwhelm me. I have to say, the e-pl6 is perfect. Not only for a beginner, but it allowed me to advance with the hundreds of camera settings. I can't think of anyone who couldn't use a camera from the pen series.

The entire PEN line are some of the most under-appreciated cameras on the market
To put it simply, this camera, as well as the entire PEN line (I own 3), offer all the control, image quality, and functionality that most people will ever need without all the functions of an expensive DSLR that most will never need. These cameras saved photography for me. The image quality is more than enough, the build quality is very nice, the size and ease of use even as a fully manual camera is wonderful. I am NOT a professional photographer but I DO use these cameras in my profession for shooting product photos, event shots, etc. and I've never been disappointed. I also shoot quite avidly for personal creative work and here again I have always been impressed with these powerful little machines! I had never used an Olympus product in my life before I got my E-PL6 a couple years ago but I am now a die hard Olympus fan thanks to their thoughtful designs, quality products, and competitive prices without skimping on things that matter.

Tiny Powerhouse
After the greater part of a year using this camera, I have to say it is a tiny powerhouse. I wanted a small ILC to replace an older compact camera I used as backup for my DSLR. After just a couple of weeks I was using this camera for most things except for when I needed finer manual control or just a little bit more speed. It has been capable at car shows [flip up screen is great for composition from the waist photos], in nature photography [yes, even flying birds], landscapes and portraiture. It has its limitations [like viewfinder only as an add on] and no built in flash, but they are only an upgrade away. Great work Olympus.
