Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Olympus E-PL5 Interchangeable Lens Digital Camera with 14-42mm Lens (White) (Electronics)
I've been shooting with a dslr for more then 3 years now upgrading bodies and lenses numerous times over to achieve "pro like" photos.
After shooting with the m4/3 camera its made me a believer and I have sold all of my dslr gear.
-lenses are cheap compared to those of a dslr. also lenses are built with great glass.
-compact size and weight of this camera allows you to take pictures in a more creative and less conspicuous way.
-camera has option to control off camera flashes which is a feature of more expensive dslrs also a feature not highlighted.
-5 stops of bracketing! for HDR photos.
-in camera image stabilization, which is great when shooting with long range prime lenses in low light conditions.
-great noise performance as good as or better then d7000, i can shoot iso 6400 with limited noise in jpeg.
-no big apature zoom lenses yet.
-no built in flash but does come with pocket size flash attachment.
