When we first were briefed on the Olympus EP5, we were quite impressed not only with its feature set but also its build quality. And for the past couple of weeks, we’ve been testing the camera during our daily routines. Olympus states that this camera has the same 16MP imaging sensor as the Olympus OMD EM5. But it also packs other crazy features such as 9fps shooting, focus peaking, Live View preview when in Bulb mode, interval shooting for time lapsers, and WiFi. In some ways, it outdoes its bigger brother, the OMD except in one critical feature: weather sealing.
But is that enough to make you not want to spring for the best Pen camera yet?
