A very good camera
It's hard to summarize a whole camera in a few paragraphs, so I'll just start with the conclusion that this is not an exciting product for many, but it is still a great one that does things my E-M1 cannot. I picked this camera up after using my E-M1 for as much as I could, but found that I needed a secondary body that was more portable when the situation wasn't as demanding. Also with a set of small primes mostly collecting dust after getting the 12-40mm pro zoom, I really wanted a smaller body to really take advantage of those lenses, and not a higher end point and shoot. I also firmly wanted in-body-image-stabilization, so that led me to the Olympus PEN line. At first the E-P5 seemed to be the thing, since it shares the same battery and IBIS with the E-M1 and E-M5, but I dismissed it because of one big thing. Group selfies. Seriously, as a photographer, I find that no matter my gear and skill, I never seem to get into any of my pictures with my family, and it's really quite sad. It's like I don't exist in any of the albums we have. It's like being the world's best barber being unable to cut his own hair. The E-PL7 gave me that, and all the new stuff like WiFi geo-tagging with my phone. I seriously hope the next OMDs come with the same level of screen articulation and software functions to do a bit of selfie taking. The E-PL5’s implementation isn’t quite as refined, so I passed on that camera as well. So I love this new capability that I have now. Camera is a lot smaller, friendlier to camera adverse people, looks classy, works and feels great (the body is part metallic construction). The functions on this camera are quite extensive, and not at all crippled like some other brands where they often over-simplify on models like this. So I haven’t lost much power or control over my E-M1, just some speed. It’s much more fun to shoot now, as I don’t feel the same level of seriousness and pressure I get from the E-M1. Selfies sure sound really uncool, but I don’t care--it’s fun, and that’s mainly why I love photography. E-PL7 helps me in that regard, and more. It’s a great camera in my eyes. P.S. You can disable that video button (red dot button) if you keep accidentally hitting it with your thumb. Hasn’t happened to me yet, but I’ve heard some concerns about it.

Best PEN Lite to date!
The E-PL7 builds on the previous PEN models. I currently own two E-PM1s and one E-PM2. I enjoy carrying a Mini when I'm out with friends and the E-M5 or E-M1 would be too large to fit in a small bag or to hang from my wrist. The E-PL7 gives me the same ease portability, with an articulating screen, onboard Wifi, and more advanced image processing features. The E-PL7 brings the TruPic 7 image processor, which gives you access to many of the same features as the E-M10 or E-M1. My favorites being Live Composite and Partial Color. The 3-axis image stabilization is noticeably better than previous image stabilization features in the Mini and Lite models. In several days of shooting (a few hundred frames) I haven't encountered an instance of "shutter shock." The improved shutter seems to have eliminated that particular issue. A nice touch is that the VF-4 evf will automatically switch to the evf when you bring it to your eye, unlike on the previous PEN Lite and Mini. The design of the E-PL7 has more retro touches than the previous PEN Lites, and is a very stylish camera in the silver and black model, especially when it's sporting the 17mm/f1.8. The buttons give adequate tactile feedback. The mode dial has good resistance, and the finely knurled surface gives secure purchase to a fingertip. I like the control dial moving from the back to the top when shooting with the evf. Another nice touch is the tripod socket is aligned with sensor axis, though it isn't aligned with the focal plane. The front and rear grips give adequate support with normal zooms. The LCD is gorgeous, and the tilt mechanism feels sturdy. I like the 3:2 aspect of the screen, which means screen protectors designed for the OM-D series will fit the E-PL7. The E-PL7 is an affordable ILC in a classic rangefinder style with both fun features and some advanced capabilities found in the OM-D series. Best PEN Lite to date.

First time Photographer
I Have been Looking for a camera for first time Photographers. I came across the the Pen E-PL7 and had a good review for people who want to just start / learn photography. I have a friend the has a different model and say's he loves his camera as well take's it every where he goes. I have now had mine for a month and love it! I have been very happy with the quality of photo's it has taken. The touch screen it easy to use and I so far have no problem navigating it to get the results I want. I purchased the kit (body and lens). Thank you Olympus for a great Camera and I would do it again if I had too!
