Great CAMERA by all standards! Lightweight but extremely capable! Since I have got used to the great grips provided on my OMD cameras, I added the grip to Pen F to make & feel complete!
Pen F was my third mirrorless camera after omd em1 and em1 mark II. I never expected it be as smart as mark II but I was pleasantly surprised how good it was in looks and functions, and by its size and quality of pics so far I have taken with it! I really bought it to have three bodies for my 3 pro lenses, namely 12-40mm 2.8 f, 40-150mm 2.8 f and 25mm 1.2 f. Now I don't have to be changing lenses all the time. Carrying all three cameras with lenses attached, along with a flash and Sirui T- 025X carbon fibre travel tripod has me looking forward to a spring time of photographing!

Ultimately, this is a camera you want to be seen with. Stunning design, great functionality, and something you will want to own for many years to come.
Just a beautiful camera to handle and use. The front knob to switch between legendary Colour2 and Mono2 easily was an absolutely brilliant design decision. I get asked everywhere, "what a beautiful camera, is it a film camera?"

Dual Personalities - Both Good
The PEN-F is the fifth digital PEN I've owned. The integrated EVF in this model pushes it into the ranks of serious enthusiast gear. This camera, with 17mm f/1.8 and 45mm f/1.8 lenses, goes with me everywhere. Attach the optional grip and the camera takes on a different personality, feeling more balanced with a larger 12-40mm f/2.8 or 75mm f/1.8 lens attached.

Reignited my love for photography
Olympus is well regarded for making aesthetically pleasing camera bodies. The PEN-F just set that bar even higher. This camera single-highhandedly rekindled my desire to take photos. I ended up selling my previous camera and lens and adopted the MFT system wholeheartedly. Though not weather-sealed, I don't personally regard that as an issue since the primes I use are not weather-sealed. I'm a fan of the rangefinder look and have the EVF on the left side. The bump to 20 MP is most certainly welcome. Generally I like all black camera bodies but the PEN-F is the exception and I went with the silver.

Superbly engineered camera
I got this as a major upgrade to the excellent EP-1 I had been using. The PEN-F had various improvements that were especially important to me such as having two easily operable dials for setting speed and aperture, dedicated exposure compensation dial where you don't have to look at the screen to know your setting, built in electronic viewfinder, and much higher resolution screen that also tilts and swivels. Another nice feature is a lock on the mode dial. There are other interesting features such as locating point of focus using the touch screen and no doubt others I haven't discovered yet. I have not experienced any minuses except a bit of weatherproofing might have been nice, but not critical for me. I like that you can do serious photography with this and the easy access of the many more physical controls than on something like the EP-1. Information display choices are excellent. While complex if you want to learn everything, it is reasonably easy to learn. The instruction manual is above average. This is simply a superbly engineered camera.
