We love the beautiful premium finish and styling Olympus E-P5, while the overhauled controls make it a much more satisfying experience to shoot with over previous models. Then there’s the image quality – while it can’t quite compete for out-and-out detail with its APS-C rivals, results are still...
Excellent finish; Fast AF; Design; Quality of results; Handling
Price compared to rivals; lack of EVF
The Olympus PEN E-P5 is the Flagship of the PEN range, replacing the E-P3 and, on the 50th anniversary of the launch of the original PEN F, strengtheningthe retro design that celebrates the company's 20th Century heritage. But underneath the PEN E-P5 is a very modern digital camera.
2x2 dial exposure control., 5-axis, 5EV built-in stabilisation., 1.03 million dot tilting LCD panel., Optional 2.36 million dot VF4 EVF., Focus peaking (albeit for still photos only)., Touch focus for movies., Intervalometer and time-lapse.
No panorama mode., 99 frame intervalometer limit., Not weather-sealed., Flash easy to accidentally pop-up., Focus peaking doesn't work for movies., Quite pricey at time of launch.
The E-P5 is the most substantial reworking of the original PEN model, and it's the most impressive yet. It produces the same excellent image quality as the E-M5 and has a proper two-dial control system.
Beautifully-styled and built, with lots of external controls, Excellent JPEG output: warm, saturated colours without being excessive, Classic twin-dial user interface, Useful and easy to use Wi-Fi, Reliable metering and white balance, Extremely fast, accurate and near-silent autofocus with MSC...
Unusually prone to blurred/shaken images at certain shutter speeds (around 1/160sec), Movie quality rather disappointing, Camera configuration dauntingly complex, Lenses with snap manual focus ring don't engage manual focus assist tools, Multi-screen Live View interface is beginning to look very...
The Olympus PEN E-P5 is an extremely impressive mirrorless camera, but we prefer its sibling, the Olympus OM-D EM-5.
Compact. In-body stabilization. Fast autofocus. Shoots at 9.7 frames per second. Large native lens library. Articulating rear LCD. Touch input support. Built-in flash. Hot shoe and accessory port. Easy Wi-Fi setup. 1080p video recording. 1/8,000 shutter with 1/320 sync.
Stabilization system is audible. EVF is not built-in. Lacks a standard mic input. Focus peaking and magnification could be better implemented. Wi-Fi could use more features.
To mark the 50th Anniversary of the PEN F, Olympus launched the PEN E-P5. The new flagship in the company's growing series of Micro Four-Thirds cameras (as of 5/2013), the E-P5 boasts the world's first 1/8000th of a second shutter speed in the Compact System Camera class.
iAuto shooting mode is accurate and easy in all situations, Overall outstanding image quality in all situations, Dedicated Video Capture Button is always ready to record, Full 1080p HD video is excellent quality, Great image quality, 5-axis Image Stabilization is great for both still images and...
Classic rangefinder styling is not the most comfortable, Pop-up flash is not near as powerful as external units, One of the higher priced ILCs
Like a lot of other cameras Olympus is churning out these days, the E-P5 looks straight out of the ’60s. Of course, that’s all a retro-facade. Despite its nostalgia-tinged design, this Micro Four-Thirds shooter is the newest and fastest addition to Olympus’ PEN lineup of cameras.
Super fast autofocus and shooting speeds. Excellent in-body stabilization system. Extensive bracketing modes. Bright, fast kit lens. Compact but still sturdy and comfortable. Good controls for both novices and advanced photographers.
Limited Wi-Fi features. Expensive for a mirrorless camera. Some on-screen touch icons are pretty small. Video options aren’t as advanced as similarly priced cameras.
All the staffers who had a chance to try out the E-P5 loved it, and we were sad to see it leave our hands. It’s nicely designed, has a ton of features, and produces really nice images.
With a large sensor, a wide range of manual settings and a full set of features, the Olympus PEN E-P5 is the DCHQ pick for Best Mirrorless Camera for 2013.
The Olympus PEN E-P5 mirrorless camera offers an advanced feature-set in a compact metal body. It has a 16 megapixels CMOS sensor with 2X crop-factor, capable of ISO 100 - 25600, 9 FPS continuous drive and 1080p HD video capture.
Very low image noise, Excellent retention of fine details, Good metering system, Reliable Automatic White-Balance, Superb built-in image stabilization, Class-leading shutter-lag and black-out, Fast contrast-detect AF, Very good shot-to-shot and drive speed, Very responsive, Extremely configurable,...
Poor color accuracy, Custom white-balance not perfect, Highly modal interface, Not always Exposure-Priority and frequently wrong Live-Histogram, Video recording delay at start and stop, Poorly placed tripod mount, Uncomfortable eyelets, Flimsy compartment door, Short battery life
Don't let the PEN moniker fool you. The Olympus E-P5 not only outshines its PEN predecessor, the E-P3, but also in many ways outpaces its older, acclaimed cousin, the OM-D E-M5. Though the E-P5 and E-M5 boast a lot of the same advanced photographic capabilities -- thanks to their shared 16-megapixel...
Attractive retro design that evokes PEN film cameras of the 1960s, Solid metal construction, with lots of physical controls including a 2x2 control dial that gives you direct access to a number of key settings, Buttons and dials provide incredible amount of customization, courtesy of Olympus Mysets,...
Heavier than many other compact mirrorless system cameras, No built-in viewfinder, though the VF-4 EVF is available in a kit or for separate purchase, JPEGs not as sharp at lower ISOs at default settings as E-M5 (however, sharpening can be adjusted), Menu navigation confusing and quirky, with a high...
Great camera for both a novice and for an experienced user. Fast and a good size. The 12-40 Pro lens used with it makes a good combination, although a bit bulky.
Right size, good features
12-40 pro lens is a bit bulky.
Love it! High quality build and excellent photos. Menus are extensive but once you learn, they're fine. Perfect size for travel. If you don't need a viewfinder, its great. If you need a viewfinder, get the OMD-EM5II. I have both and highly recommend both.
You won't find much advanced compact cameras with swivel screens and no viewfinders. This camera will probably be the last, considering the Pen F seems to be it's successor. I think company's are missing a hole in the enthusiast photographer target audience and this camera came very close to filling...
A very elegant camera for travel photography. This certainly delivers sufficient resolution that would satisfy most of the amateur street photography enthusiast like me.
Having owned the E-PL5 for a while now with the 14-42mm and 40-150mm I felt that it was time to step up a little. I recently bought the VF-4 for my E-PL5 for a very good price (debundled) and I liked that a lot already.
