Conclusion from DPReview:

The Olympus PEN E-PL10 is a compact, entry-level camera that’s good at many things. It offers some beginner-friendly tools, though they don’t lend themselves to growth as a photographer. Both photo and image quality are good, and the camera is responsive, but it doesn’t do as much to stand out amongst its peers.

Good for
Beginners who want to stick with automatic controls and take casual video clips.

Not so good for
Beginners looking to grow into more experienced photographers. Those who want to charge the battery on the go.
