From DxOMark conclusion :

Although we leave the reviewing of cameras to our friends at DPReview, the PEN E-PL7 looks to be a solid choice in terms of features and sensor performance. Admittedly it’s not quite in the same league as the larger APS-C sensor in the Sony A5100, particularly in low-light, although it can compete in dynamic range and noise levels up to ISO 800. Overall, it’s a good sensor, and the inclusion in the E-PL7 of in-body 3-axis image stabilization should help offset some of its limitations.

The Olympus PEN E-PL7 features a 16-megapixel CMOS sensor, 3-axis image stabilization, 8 fps continuous shooting and built-in Wi-Fi. The PEN E-PL7 also provides an articulated 3″ touch LCD, capable of flipping downward by 180°.
