Olympus PEN-F Earned the Silver Award With a High Score
From Dpreview conclusion:
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.
The new digital PEN-F camera features a 20-megapixel Micro Four Thirds sensor with a 50-Megapixel high resolution shot capability, 5-axis Image Stabilisation system (worth some 5 EV stops when shooting at low ISO), built-in viewfinder with a real-time preview of settings adjustments and offers an impressive 2.36 Million-dot OLED panel. The PEN-F also boasts a fully articulating 1.04 Million-dot 3″ LCD and can record full 1080HD videos at 60p. More details can be found at Additional Coverage page.
