Olympus E-P5

16.1 megapixel, Compact System Camera, Non-Zoom

The Olympus E-P5 is the company's best PEN-series Micro Four Thirds camera yet, taking the best of its predecessor, the E-P3, and many features from the acclaimed OM-D E-M5, and adding a few new wrinkles of its own. Overall, this flagship mirrorless model delivers blazing fast autofocus, burst shooting near 10fps and exceptional image quality -- even at higher ISOs -- that rival the performance of many top enthusiast DSLRs.

Released May 2013

Olympus E-PL5

16.1 megapixel, Compact System Camera, 3.00x Zoom

The Olympus E-PL5 packs serious photographic power into a small package, with image quality that's simply astounding at this price point. Though the E-PL5's menu system is confusing and confounding, those with patience will find themselves pleased with the camera's advanced, immensely customizable controls. Add to all this very fast and responsive shooting performance, and the Olympus E-PL5 emerges as a strong contender.

Olympus E-PM2

16.1 megapixel, Compact System Camera, 3.00x Zoom

Small, lightweight, powerful and affordable, the Olympus E-PM2 features the same 16-megapixel Live MOS sensor, processor and FAST AF system as its much more expensive Olympus E-M5 sibling. The E-PM2 is by no means perfect -- it's a little lacking in shooting action stills and HD video -- but it is a tremendous value, and a great choice for beginners looking to step up from a point-and-shoot.
