The Olympus PEN-F Review - By Andy Atmtx
This is a fantastic review of the Olympus PEN-F from my friend and Drink and Click™ Austin, Texas member Andy Atmtx. Please read this introduction and click on the link to read the rest on his site.
I had the special privilege of playing with a pre-production PEN-F for the last few weeks, before the official announcement. A big thanks to Olympus for giving me a chance to use the camera. The following are my impressions of this beautifully retro and full modern digital camera.
The rebirth of a classic, the Olympus PEN-F makes its digital debut. Just when the PEN line looked relegated to play second fiddle to the OM-D, Olympus comes out with its most impressive PEN. In terms of build quality, I think it’s the best yet in the long line of micro 4/3 cameras. Even better than any OM-D.
The camera now sports a 20MP sensor, the highest resolution for an Olympus micro 4/3 camera. The Hi-res shot has been increased from 40MP to 50MP for JPEGs and to 80MP for RAW. And the PEN now has a built-in 2.36M pixel EVF. But the headline feature, dare I say, the entire reason for this camera, in my opinion, is its beautiful classic looks and direct access to creative features.
