I have been using Olympus for years, bought the Pen series, the E-3 and E-5. Great cameras. Fast and great colour. The menu operations in the newest versions are a bit wonky, convoluted. This new model seems to bring it back to the basics with more dials, giving control back to the shooter. I applaud this, and expect to add it to my lineup. Kudos to Oly!
I wonder if this camera will be as good as the E-5 when it comes to sports photography. I find that the Pen cameras, like the new E-P3 is just not up to the task when it comes to shooting basketball or any other fast sports.
I have this book. Like everyone, I'd like to know more about this incredible woman. The photographs may be eclectic, but there is always that steady gaze in the eyes of the people she has photographed. They must've trusted her. Using a twin-lens camera, as she did, was the perfect snap-shooter piece of equipment. She had to be patient. Those being photographed had to trust her. There is a lovely gentle quality to these pictures.
This looks like an amazing camera. I really hoped the Pen series would have had a built-in optical viewfinder, as does the X-10 and x-100 with Fuji. This new camera looks to be another classic in Oly's lineup. Great move on their part. The camera will get a lot of use for those who have the lenses both with the Four-Thirds and Micro Four-Thirds. Kudos to Oly!
