Self portrait: Olympus PEN E-PL7 First Impressions Review

Ok, the one Olympus camera that fits virtually all my needs is the E-M1, and that’s what I’ll be buying in the foreseeable future. No other MFT camera yet came as close to my highly regarded E-30 for me as to consider buying it, not even the E-M5 or E-M10 or the Panasonic GH3/4 or the GX7, the latter of which I nonetheless find very appealing, it’s just that I either need more and faster and better native lenses in the long telephoto range – or, alternatively, the FT compatibility so far only the E-M1 offers.

Nonetheless, with the E-M1 now being on my path, I still keep looking what else there is, as l might very well consider buying a PEN as a second body some time. But would I want a camera without a built-in viewfinder even as a second body? Never!

Furthermore, I ask myself whether Olympus will someday offer a compact, PEN-like body with the PDAF-capable E-M1 sensor, so that I could use my FT lenses on the second body, too, because that’ what I’ll be using for some time to come.
