Overview

Description by Olympus:

PRO QUALITY YOU FIT IN YOUR POCKET.
You love being creative. But you also demand superior image quality and uncompromising performance. The PEN E-PL5 is perfect. Shoot images with stunning detail and vivid color thanks to a powerful tandem of a sizeable 16 MP Live MOS Sensor and our TruePic VI image processing engine. Technology like an AF Illuminator and an ISO with speeds that hit 25,600 capture crisp, clear shots in low light. Everything is fast on the PEN E-PL5 from the exceedingly responsive touch screen to 8 fps sequential shooting. Nourish your artistic side with Full HD Video 1080i and 12 Art Filters and Effects. Take full control of your settings with features such as My Set, and a customizable self timer. Unleash your creativity, apply new monochrome Art Filters Effects or edit RAW images right in the camera. The PEN E-PL5. All the professional features you need to take you to the next creative level.

IMMEDIATE RESPONSE ONE-TOUCH SHUTTER AND CONTROL
The E-PL5’s Touchscreen reacts quickly with the slightest touch and can focus by touch even if the subject is not in the center. Touch Screen display makes it easy to choose AF points, capture a picture, change camera settings, release the shutter or navigate controls, simply by touching the screen.

8FPS SEQUENTIAL SHOOTING
With the E-PL5 you can take up to eight photos a second, allowing you to easily capture that perfect shot, especially when your subject is moving.

FAST AF WITH FACE AND EYE DETECT
The FAST (Frequency Acceleration Sensor Technology) AF System is able to focus at an incredible speed and offers 35 separate focus points that are spread over nearly the entire sensor, which makes it possible for pin-point accurate focusing on small subjects wherever they appear in the frame. Selectable 3x3 groups within the 35-point area are especially effective when shooting active subjects.

16MP LIVE MOS IMAGE SENSOR
Featuring the 16 megapixel Live MOS sensor of the OM-D E-M5, the Olympus Micro Four Thirds flagship, the PEN E-PL5, is optimized to maximize the performance of all mZuiko digital lenses in any shooting condition. Improvements to the sensitivity and read-out speed of the existing sensor makes shooting and Full HD movie recording possible.

TRUEPIC VI IMAGE PROCESSOR
TruePic VI Image Processor, designed specifically for the Olympus PEN, features Real Color Technology for improved color reproduction (especially colors such as emerald green, yellow, and gold) and color gradation. The faster processor also allows for a shorter recovery time between shots.

PROVEN DUST REDUCTION SYSTEM
Olympus’ Dust Reduction System assures spot-free images, even if you change lenses. Every time you turn on the camera, the patented Supersonic Wave Filter silently vibrates, flinging and collecting dust so that it doesn’t interfere with the picture imaging at any time.

IN-BODY IMAGE STABILIZATION
Say goodbye to blurry images. Olympus’ in-body image stabilization technology makes it possible to use any Micro Four Thirds lenses (or Four Thirds lens), from wide-angle to telephoto, for perfectly clear, crisp photos no matter what the shooting situation, even in low light!

12 ART FILTERS AND 7 ART FILTER EFFECTS
Twelve in-camera Art Filters are enhanced by new filter variations, art effects and bracketing. Photographers can use Art Filters in all shooting modes as well as filming HD movies.

The Twelve in-camera Art Filters (Pop Art, Soft Focus, Pale and Light Color, Light Tone, Grainy Film, Pin Hole, Diorama, Gentle Sepia, Cross Process, Key Line, Dramatic Tone and NEW Watercolor) are enhanced by new filter variations, art effects and bracketing. Also, the E-PL5 now features the Monochrome Art Filter Effect, where the Picture Tone effect can change the color from normal monotone to sepia, blue, purple, and green.

FULL 1080I HD MOVIE – WITH ART FILTER MOVIE AND EFFECTS
Shoot up to 29 minutes of 1080 60i HD video and stereo sound in either .MOV or .AVI formats. A Direct HD Movie Button switches you from still to movie mode with just the press of a button. Shoot movies with Art Filters, and new to the E-PL5, change your Art Filter while shooting your movie and see the transition right on the LCD, without missing a beat.

4X DIGITAL TOUCH ZOOM IN MOVIE

NEW FLIP SELF PORTRAIT 3” LCD SCREEN
The E-PL5 features a flip touch screen that rotates 170 degrees and allows you to take self portraits. The E-PL5 is designed to optimize the touch screen LCD and was introduced to operate the MENU display with a new simple operation instead of a mode dial. The E-PL5’s Touchscreen reacts quickly with the slightest touch and can focus by touch, also choose what you want to focus on by touch, even if the subject is not in the center.

LIVE GUIDE
The E-PL5’s Live Guide system allows you to preview effects as you adjust them – before the image is even captured. Simply select Live Guide and turn the wheel on the back of the camera to slide through numerous photographic effects, such as brightness, color saturation, tone, etc. Operating the camera is more intuitive with the newly designed user interface.

Reviews

"Everything I wrote on E-PM2 can be said for E-PL5 again. Sensor and image quality are superb, a real step forward from old Olympus 12MP sensor used in preceding models. Auto focus is amongst the fastest in mirrorless world and can compete with any similarly priced DSLR. The two main differences which might make E-PL5 more interesting than cheaper E-PM2 are the external mode dial and tilt-LCD. It is way easier composing shots and shooting video with tilt-screen and this might be the sole reason to spend extra $ 100 for E-PL5 compared to E-PM2."

"At first glance, the E-PL5 seems nothing more than a tweak to the E-PL3, but while it may look similar, the E-PL5 feels like a completely different camera underneath. This is in no small part due to the rather impressive 16.1MP sensor borrowed from the OM-D. While it probably doesn't beat APS-C rivals, it's much closer, making the difference negligible and less of a deal-breaker. Add to that a host of subtle improvements over the E-PL3 and the E-PL5 is now one of the most competent CSCs at this price-point. There's still room for improvement however - the grip needs to be refined, while the

"Continuing the Olympus Digital PEN series, the E-PL5 is another great addition to this ever growing line of compact, interchangeable lens cameras. As a mid-range model, the E-PL5 packs in a 16-Megapixel Live MOS imaging sensor, TruePic VI processor, Sensor Shift image stabilization, incredibly fast AF system and a load of creative features and filters to keep this camera well rounded.

"Though I love the look of the E-PL5 and it does take better looking pictures for my purposes, I have to say that in terms of use when I'm out shooting, I do prefer the NEX-6. It just works better for me. Recently there have been several days of bright sunshine, but very cold temperatures and the NEX-6 has proved much more comfortable to use. The Pen range as a whole is a stylish retro recreation that looks good and takes great pictures, with a superb lens range to go with it.

But the NEX-6 seems to me to be much more about what photographers find useful and comfortable (Well this

"The Olympus E-PL5 has a lot going for it: great image quality, quick controls, a lightweight body, a large screen, fast focusing, and does it all at a pretty great price tag. The camera will be one that both beginners and enthusiasts will be able to pick up and shoot with little issues from the very start. Olympus has made the ergonomics extremely versatile by making it a point-and-shoot camera style body with a large LCD screen that mimics the feel of a TLR experience. This screen will also be of great use to people shooting video. The overall compact package makes it a great choice for vacations or an every day camera.

"The Olympus PEN Lite E-PL5 features an updated tilting 3inch touch screen, with better handling than the previous Lite E-PL3. The camera doesn't feature a panoramic mode, but does include a built in HDR bracketing mode, although unfortunately this doesn't auto-stitch the photos. The Live Time feature inherited from the Olympus OM-D E-M5 is an excellent feature.

The camera's image quality is vastly improved over the previous PEN cameras, inheriting the 16 megapixel sensor from the

"The Olympus EPL5 is a really excellent camera and the company got a lot right in its creation. The excellent image quality combined with its awesome autofocusing abilities and the beautiful LCD screen make this a real winner in my book. However, the menus are still a bit too thick for my liking, as is the camera. The EPL5 is significantly thicker than previous pen cameras, and doesn’t even fit in my premium pen case. Also, I really wish that the LCD screen were a higher resolution.

Many people will like this though: the camera has excellent battery life. With that said, it also has a brand new battery: in fact, it is larger than the OMD EM5′s. And that is very weird."

"The mirrorless compact system camera market now offers more choice than ever before and, with the addition of Canon's EOS M it promises to become even more crowded. By giving the E-PL5, and presumably any upcoming PEN models, the same sensor as the Flagship OM-D E-M5, adding features that improve usability, like the touch screen, and expanding the choice of lenses and accessories Olympus is doing exactly what it needs to, to maintain its position as a leader in the CSC

"Image quality is a leap forward for Micro Four Thirds at this price point, which is a huge selling point. Add a decent build, fast autofocus system and, of course, wide selection of Micro Four Thirds lenses and there's not much to dislike.

Our limited moans are that the plastic front grip looks cheap, there's no built-in flash and that continuous autofocus still

"The optional 14-42mm f/3.5-5.6 kit lens hinders the PL5's usability. The lens barrel must be manually unlocked from its closed position, severely slowing down the shooting experience. Then, it remains extended at every focal length. It's unsightly, and it's hard to intuitively know if your lens is zoomed in or out."

"With the Pen E-PL5, Olympus updates its range of micro 4:3 compact hybrids with redesigned ergonomics, upgraded electronics, and especially with the integration of the same 16Mpix LiveMos sensor found in the OM-D E-M5. Will it show the same advances in image quality as the flagship camera of its line? Our tests provide the answer."

"The Olympus PEN Lite E-PL5 isn't the best Micro Four Thirds camera you can buy—that's the weather-sealed Olympus OM-D E-M5—but it's the best one you'll get for under $1,000. It's fast to focus and rattles off shots at an impressive speed, it's kit lens is quite sharp, and it has a tilting rear display with touch input support. It doesn't have a whiz-bang feature like the Wi-Fi connectivity that is built into the Samsung NX1000. Even though the E-PL5 outshines other cameras with the Micro Four Thirds lens mount, it doesn't quite equal our current Editors' Choice in the more broad entry-level

This may not by the top of the line Olympus camera on the market, but it offers top of the line image quality. This review comes with an asterisk however, for reasons unknown to us the reviewer chose to shoot a great lot of the sample pictures at some detail squashing apertures, all the way up to a fizzying f16 (!). Excerpt:
