Olympus PEN-F Mirrorless Camera Gets Silver Award from DPReview

The newly announced Olympus PEN-F micro four thirds mirrorless camera gets 82% overall score and Silver Award from the experts at DPReview.

Revolving around a 20.3MP Live MOS sensor and TruePic VII processor, the PEN-F offers nuanced image quality with reduce noise, along with the ability to shoot at up to 10 fps with a mechanical shutter, record Full HD 1080p video, and a sensitivity range up to ISO 25600.

Conclusion from DPReview:

The PEN F is a fashionable as it is functional. Pairing many of the same guts found in the enthusiast OM-D E-M5 II with a brand-new 20MP sensor, the PEN F is a highly capable shooter offering good image quality and decent video quality. Features like image stabilization prove extremely useful during both still and video capture and the camera’s six film presets are especially appealing if you’re a JPEG shooter. However the PEN F’s MSRP puts it into a crowded class of cameras. And while it is not the most technically capable of the bunch, it is easily the most beautifully-engineered and simply put, a pleasure to shoot with.
