Review summary from DPReview

Olympus E-P5 17mm f1.8 and VF-4 16.1 MP Cameras
DPReview Silver AwardOctober 2013
The E-P5 is a PEN model that offers a competitively complete camera - with the image quality, focus speed and user interface all coming together to offer a strong package.
Richard ButlerRichard ButlerAndy WestlakeAndy Westlake

Conclusion

The E-P5 is the most substantial reworking of the original PEN model, and it's the most impressive yet. It produces the same excellent image quality as the E-M5 and has a proper two-dial control system. This, combined with a better touch screen and arguably the prettiest PEN body, make it a more attractive and more complete camera than the series has seen before.

Reasons to buy

  • Excellent JPEG output
  • Beautifully-styled and built with lots of external controls
  • Classic twin-dial user interface
  • Useful and easy to use Wi-Fi

Things to consider

  • Unusually prone to blurred images at certain shutter speeds (around 1/160sec)
  • Movie quality rather disappointing
  • Camera configuration dauntingly complex
  • Pop-up flash prone to accidental release

Suggested for

Out-and-about shooting. Making the most of Olympus's range of prime lenses.

Not suggested for

Sports shooting or videography.

Pros Image quality is excellent compared to the new point and shoot cameras and on par with DSLR's.
Brad Hutchinson
I can now instantly get the optimal settings for all my common shooting needs just by switching from A to S priority, without diving into menus.

I've only just started playing with this, but it's a fantastic feature that any serious photographer is going to get a lot of use out of.

Just received my E-P5 + VF4 + 17mm lens kit yesterday! I've had a chance to try it out some, and draw some quick comparisons to the EM5.

I ALREADY HAVE AN EM5. SO WHY DID I PURCHASE THE EP5 KIT? I got into photography during the digital age, and like many photographers in their 30s, have become accustomed to composing with the screen. In contrast to many others, I upgraded from the EPL1 to the EM5 not for the built-in VF but for the IBIS and improved IQ. I went ahead and got the battery grip as well because I got a good package deal. I've done a lot of traveling over the past year. Although I use the landscape grip all the time, I hardly ever use the VF, except when in bright sunlight. Although I love my EM5, I've been frustrated with the certain aspects of the handling: the implementation of the bracketing function, the small size of the function buttons. I found that the placement of the control wheels made it uncomfortable to hold the camera without the landscape grip. Another consideration is that my needs have changed. Because of my new job, I won't be traveling that much over the next year or so, and plan on shooting primarily at family events, at restaurants and bars, and on the street. The ability to fit the EP5 with a compact lens in a small case--together with the fact that the EP5 has a built-in flash--also appealed to me. Finally, aside from the 12-35mm, which I use quite a bit, all the other lenses I use are quite small.

HANDLING: Because of the placement of the buttons and the shape of the front part of the grip (extends further toward the lens mount), I find the EP5 more comfortable to hold than the EM5 sans landscape grip. The EM5 with landscape grip is undeniably more comfortable when shooting with heavier lenses like the 12-35mm.

Style Name: w/ 17mmColor Name: Silver Verified Purchase
To qualify myself I have a successful photography business and I have shot every level of camera out there. I shoot weddings, commercial work, event photography, family portraits, and much more all with M43 cameras. Was a Nikon guy until 3 years ago but 3 Nikons with back focus issues pointed me towards the M43 revolution. I have never looked back and I have owned about every Olympus M43 camera they make. I currently shoot with the E-M1 and E-M5 and my results have been beyond stellar. There are currently no APS-C cameras nor Full Frame cameras that interest me in the least bit because my results with Olympus has been so spectacular. The sharpness in focus with these cameras are second to none. That brings me to the E-P5. I have to say after several days use, it is my favorite M43 camera ever and that says a lot being that I own the E-M1. This camera is amazingly solid, controls are very logical and everything works as a rangefinder style body should. This camera even more so than my other Olympus cameras truly puts the fun back in photography. This camera is just plain sexy and the image quality is amazing. I love hearing people say but when I zoom in 500% the 43 sensor just doesn't cut it. I say you are so beyond anal and need to focus on artistry not pixels. Why are photographers so afraid of grain? Remember when you used to pick a film for its graininess to add to the artistic value? That being said, the grain is so extremely well controlled and has an amazing film quality to it. This has been the case with about every Olympus camera I have owned. I am so glad I picked this camera over the GX7 and the VF-4 is a must. Buy this camera if you want the best bang for your buck with unreal IQ and portability. To show you what these cameras can do search Brock Best Photography on Google to see my work.Read more ›

Style Name: w/ 17mmColor Name: Silver
I've had the e-p5 for several months now -- long enough for a medium-length trip to Europe and a short jaunt around Cape Cod. The e-p5 is a wonderful kit. The camera feels solid, the controls are intuitive and the LCD is a revelation. I previously owned an e-pl2 with a VF2 viewfinder and virtually never shot without the VF2. So I hesitated to buy the e-p5 since it does not have a built-in evf. But I'm delighted in my choice because the tiltable lcd on the e-p5 is fantastic. It's clear and bright enough for most daylight situations and using it is a bit like the old medium-format cameras where you frame your shot by looking down at a viewfinder rather than holding the camera to your face. It's quite nice! There are some situations where the VF-4 (yes I bought that too) is superior but not as many as I had assumed. What's nice is that the e-p5 without the VF-4 is a very unobtrusive piece of gear.

The camera feels an order of magnitude faster than the e-pl2 and actually as fast as any of the DSLR's that I've handled. It starts up in a flash, focuses quickly and with a fast SDXC card it can shoot JPEG+RAW with no delay. The Olympus menus are a challenge but the touch screen on the e-p5 helps out a bit here and once you figure out how to use them the flexibility is fantastic. For example you can bind saved settings ("mysets" in Olympus-speak) to positions on the mode dial. That means that I can set the camera up so that switching to 'P' gets my favorite settings, but switching to ART gives me P-mode + exposure bracketing (I never apply ART filters in-camera). I can leave iAuto unaltered for my wife or times when I don't want to fuss with a lot of photo-geekery. Nearly a perfect setup.
