Engadget Summary

Olympus is no stranger to the mirrorless market and their latest PEN features the same sensor and autofocus as the E-M5 in a smaller package, but it's going to cost you. The E-M5 wowed critics with its image quality, so it's no surprise the E-P5 does the same, with CNET saying it "delivers the best image quality I've seen from a Micro Four Thirds camera." Naturally, the E-P5 is also fast, with TechRadar calling it "speedy." Even though the E-P5 is smaller than its sibling, DigitalCameraInfo didn't find its size a problem, saying "the E-P5's dual control dials are positioned more naturally than they were on the OM-D." Ultimately, Olympus has a real standout with the E-P5 and you won't be disappointed in it at all. It's just going to cost a pretty penny, but at least you'll know it was worth it.
