The Olympus E-PL5 Mirrorless Digital Camera with 14-42mm f/3.5 II Lens (Black) is the latest edition to the Olympus PEN E-PL series of mirrorless interchangeable lens digital cameras. Included with this camera is the M. Zuiko 14-42mm f/3.5 II lens.

A 16MP Live MOS sensor provides this camera with DSLR-like image quality and the TruePic VI image processor brings with it fast response time and accurate colors and contrasts. Its mirrorless design allows for a compact body and a large line of compatible interchangeable lenses offers the flexibility to capture any type of shot you can imagine.

With an ISO range up to 25600 and In-body Image Stabilization, low-light photography is delivered with saturated colors and little noise. Sequential shooting of 8 frames per second and the Olympus F.A.S.T. Auto Focus system equal high speed performance and with the assistance of Face and Eye Detection, portraits and group shots are focused and exposed automatically to produce ideal shots every time.

Auto focus and shutter release can be controlled by touching the LCD screen. Set the focus on your subject by touching that spot on the LCD and the camera will hold that focus until you touch the LCD again to release the shutter. The LCD itself is a 3.0" Flip Portrait display that can be titled up or down for creative composition or to control glare and reflection when shooting in bright sunlight.

The E-PL5 is capable of shooting Full 1080i HD video and can playback that HD video on an HDTV with a simple connection to its HDMI output. It also has a multi-purpose accessory port for connecting accessories including the FL-LM1 flash unit which included with this camera.

Twelve in-camera art filters can add creative flourish to your images. Soft Focus, Grainy Film and Pin Hole, for example, are enhanced by filter variations, art effects and bracketing. This creative palette can be used in all shooting modes including while filming HD movies. iAuto is also a part of the package and it's there for you when you want the camera to recognize what it is seeing and automatically take the best photo possible. Also featured is Olympus' Dust Reduction System which keeps the camera's sensor clean by vibrating a Supersonic Wave Filter every time the camera is turned on.

Along with compact form, interchangeable lenses are an important advantage to mirrorless photography and Olympus provides a wide array of lenses to fit the E-PL5 including the M.Zuiko Digital ED 14-42mm f/3.5-5.6 which is bundled with this camera. With a retractable mechanism design, this 3X zoom lens is compact with an overall length of just 1.71" (43.5mm). This lens is designed specifically for Micro Four Thirds mounts and with multi-coating on all lens surfaces it offers even light transmission and reduced aberrations. This is a versatile lens, covering wide-angle to moderate telephoto focal lengths.

Excellent Image quality


from Tustin, CA

I decided to try my first olympus micro 4/3rds camera. I own a couple of Panasonic ones but I couldn't resist trying out the same sensor as the one the OMD EM5 has. I am very happy with the image quality. I think the Olympus cameras have better metering and white balance, in addition to the newer sensor, you are getting a great image.

Nice improvements over the previous m43s


from san francisco, ca  -  Photo Enthusiast

The e-pl5 is a solid camera, has the ability to capture excellent images. Compared directly with a friends omd, using the same lens and settings, the results were very close, you really have to blow up the image, and you'll notice slightly better jpg processing in the omd. For everyday shooting the lack of view finder rarely impedes, I can imagine where it could be a problem if you're mainly shooting fast action sports. I primarily pair the e-pl5 with the panny leica 25mm f1.4 lens, and it performs just as good as my t4i /w the canon 50 f1.4, and I prefer it over my canon 28 f1.8 Iso performance is good, you can shoot useable photos at iso 3200, without being overly noisy. dont expect much from the flash, it's there only for emergencies. My only wish is if the body added another dial, to make it easier to control aperature and shutter speed, but it useable with only one dial. If the camera was stolen, I'd buy another, it's that good. pair it with the panasonic 14 f2 pancake, and you have an rig that'll fit in your pocket

Questions about this item:

Shopper  Just wanted to make sure this package includes a bundled flash that I believe comes in box w/ the E-PL5, is this correct?
JAY Z  The small external flash was included with the bundle when I bought it at the end of 2012. I seldom use the flash, because the camera takes good pictures in low light even without a flash, especially if a fast lens like the Panasonic 20mm F1.7 is added. The basic kit is very nice, and the 14-42 zoom is very quick and accurate to auto focus, but addding a fast lens and a longer zoom makes it great. I have been into photography for 35 years, and have used equipment ranging from pocket cameras to pro DSLR. This camera is my favorite, because it possesses an ideal balance of quality, capability and ease of carry. It has rejuvinated my enthusiasm for photography because it takes great pictures and is fun to utilize its many features. Hope this helps.
