Olympus PEN E-P5 Hands On Review

From DigitalcameraHQ review:

The price and feature set make the E-P5 an ideal camera for the intermediate to advanced photographer. The Panasonic GX-7, due out at the end of September and pricing at about $1,100, is likely the strongest competitor to the E-P5 with a similar feature set and a 14-42 mm lens but slower burst capture. Sony’s Alpha NEX line is also a competitor, but lacks the optical viewfinder. Nikon’s 1 J3 has faster continuous shooting, but with a smaller sensor and fewer features isn’t quite in the same category.
