    Olympus PEN E-P5

    Just Posted: Detailed hands-on Olympus PEN E-P5 preview: Digital Photography Review


    No experience using mirrorless cameras. Any members using these cameras?

    Thinking of getting the EP5 later this year.

    Or should i also look at the Panasonic G Series Range?

    Thank you.

    I just got rid of my DSLR gear and part of my thinking was the increase in quality of more compact cameras. I like the look of the Leica D-Lux and Panasonic equivalents, look like they have a very capable lens and great low light ability.

    Downside of the Olympus range has always been the small sensor, so poor low light capability, and that funky 4:3 aspect ratio. Don't know if those things have changed?

    I am using the Pany GX1 and the Pannilux f1.4 25mm prime as my primary night / bar rig. I have the 14 - 140 lens in the UK as a travel lens but mostly I am getting used to faster primes and fixed focal lengths. I nearly grabbed an OM-D but this came up on ebay as a steal so tested with this. Not perfect but works... So much smaller than a DSLR but its no pocket camera.

    I expect the EP-5 to be a hot selling item..

    Not too worried about pocket size, I just think that they are now a valid replacement for DSLRs in many situations and far more practical. Last time I took my camera bag away it weighed 12kg, quite a commitment dragging that around.
