Pen F looks great and has lots of features. The image quality is outstanding, especially B&W which I love so much!
its compact and takes greats shots and has an amazing look
Fantastic camera, excellent form and ergonomics especially with the accessory grip. Its very responsive, and of very high quality. I expect to keep the camera for many years, because its image quality is excellent. The creative options are nice too...its great to see the image in the field at the time of exposure instead of on the computer screen. Highly recommended!
I read a lot of comments saying that it is/looks like a rangefinder, and gives a somewhat of a close similar experience.
Well, yeah at first glance has a relatively similar shape to a Leica M, mostly because the left side evf. But fear not, despite not being or even remotely giving a RF experience, still has a cool retro look, very similar indeed to the original half-frame PEN-F.
I wish it had more customization buttons, or at least the existing ones would provide more options.
It is indeed a camera that plays better with smaller lenses, but is not too bad even with the Olympus 40-150 pro.
My only complaint is the lack of worthy water resistance like the omd's. Can take a light drizzle, but I would not push beyond that.
I love the quick access menu, and wish Olympus would release a guide with better explanation of functions - the manual alone does not provide enough details - just about barely enough.
One thing to be careful with, is the exposure - the latitude of forgiveness and recovery of dynamic range is a bit shallow.
Love the silent shutter modes, and stabilization system.
In sum, I am happy with this camera, but will remain as a secondary system. I expect to keep improving my images as I learn to use its full potential; joy and pleasure of use it's already on.
Thanks for a great product and design Olympus
Great Rangedinder style camera
Purchased this camera to replace an OMD-EM10, looking for a boost in image quality and utilizing some of the new features of the creative dial. Have to say the camera performed as I hoped. Moreover, the WIFI performance has also been improved over the EM10. Perfect size for street shooting with the. 25. 1.8 prime lens.
