Classic Rangefinder Design with Precision Controls
Rangefinder cameras were all the rage in 1963. Now they’re back. The beautifully-crafted PEN-F features all-metal construction with luxurious metal and leather-grained accents. Each of the camera’s functions are easy to reach and can be fully customized. You’ll find an exposure compensation dial on top, two customizable dials to assign functions and four custom modes, all operable with your right hand without taking your eye from the viewfinder. Shoot the way you want.
20 MP Live MOS Sensor
Count on every shot to have vivid color and exquisite detail thanks to PEN-F's 20 MP Live MOS Sensor and TruePic VII Image Processor. If you’re shooting landscapes or architecture, the 50 MP High Res Shot Mode captures 8 images in sequence and combines them to develop a single stunning ultra-high resolution photo.

10 fps Sequential Shooting
Shooting street photography means always being ready. And with high-speed sequential shooting of 10 shots per second, PEN-F ensures you will be. Capture key moments using the 1/8000 mechanical shutter that boasts the shortest release time of any compact system camera. Perfect for capturing the spontaneity of city life.

5-Axis Image Stabilization
Street photography often means you or your camera is moving. And that’s not a good thing if you want clear, sharp images. PEN-F's world-class in-body image stabilization compensates for all types of movement for beautiful results, even in low light. Plus, the system stabilizes the viewfinder image to allow for accurate framing.

OLED Electronic Viewfinder
PEN-F's interactive EVF lets you keep your eye on the subject while maintaining control of the camera's settings. The bright 2.36 million-dot EVF provides 100% field of view. And with PEN-F's 3.0” articulating monitor that doubles as an AF Targeting Pad, touch the monitor with your thumb to set focus points while composing your shot.

Nighttime Live Composite
Struggle with conventional bulb shooting no more. PEN-F simplifies night photography to allow you to create stunning streetscapes and star trails every time you're out. Live Composite Mode assembles the brightest areas of multiple images in Live View while you watch. It’s a bright new way to capture cities at night.

PEN-F's specialized modes help you make the most of every photo opportunity. Interval shooting and 4K Time Lapse Movie Mode capture images over time. Silent Mode quiets all camera functions for discrete shooting. Keystone Compensation automatically corrects for trapezoidal distortion - especially useful for taking photos of architecture.

I bought and reviewed several cameras before settling on this one. I looked at the Panasonic LUMIX G8X and the Olympus OMD Mark5-2. Both nice cameras with great features but was seduced by the Pen F's homage to the rangefinders of the 50's.
I won't add too much to Steve's review other than to say that this is not a point and shoot camera but a serious machine that takes advantage of technology so that rather than spending time in the darkroom there's a lot you can do right in the camera before the shutter is pressed. The ability to adjust highlights, shadows and mid tones right at eye level is amazing. Same thing for exposure compensation. HDR is an amazing feature: When the range of tones exceeds the camera's ability to capture you shoot in HDR mode which takes many shots at once of the same scene with varying exposure levels so one captures the detail in highlights and others detail in shadows and the camera stitches the composite together as one picture. Ansel Adams would have loved this feature alone. They give you the Zone system without you having to worry about exposure or a trip to the darkroom. I'm very excited about this toy and just purchased the 12mm F2 Olympus lens on eBay which in 4/3 lingo is equivalent to 24mm in 35mm format. Quality is super right on up to 11x14 and I usually limit my prints to 8x10 anyway. Never got in to big prints. The feature that Steve gets so excited about is the real deal: they have special modes that simulate TRI x and Kodachrome film. TriX mode 2 is uncannily like the silver neg and print. Other neat features are level bubbles in both axis' in the viewfinder if you choose and a key stoning feature where the camera will correct diverging vertices or horizontals which is useful for architectural shots. Menus are extensive and a bit daunting; it may take a few days to understand them all. I was a former Leica enthusiast and this camera comes closest to my old love in handling.
This is an update after learning more about the camera: While the menus, particularly the advanced custom menus remain daunting, I've learned to love the Super Control Menu which allows the user to change stuff on the fly. It even works viewing in the viewfinder if the outdoor lighting is preventing good vision on the rear monitor. However every once in a while I forget how to set up something that is not frequently used, like Panorama mode. I took me two days to figure out how to do this and there were at least three separate menu selections to achieve this. Now of course it's forever ensconced in C4 custom mode and I shouldn't ever need to go through this again unless the cameras computer chip needs to be rebooted. Still, come on Olympus? Some one needs to write a decent manual for this otherwise gem of a camera.

I have all the Olympus M43 system lenses. I must say the faster zooms are a bit unwieldy on this camera due to their size. The slower zooms are smaller and work well, particularly with the in-camera image stabilization, and are the right physical size for this camera. The fixed lenses work and handle well. I anticipate spending most of my time with these, particularly the 12mm f2.0.
I didn't expect the IQ to compete with FF cameras, but it's not far behind and it's very easy to use. Can't wait for the RAW update for Lightroom so I can see how the RAW files look.
Highly recommended despite the complaints about the lack of weather sealing, and the lack of customizability of the front jpeg art dial (a petty complaint in my book–really just makes it more likely for RAW shoots to try out the jpeg filters).
I do like its looks, though the styling owes more to the Leica/Contax/Canon axis than to the original Olympus Pens. But the size is a little disappointing. It looks like it should be much smaller, not the same size as the E-M5.
I can't make a practical argument for owning this camera, but with a nice little lens like the 17mm f/2.8, it is fun to use and looks great.
