PEN Lite E-PL5

Rating: no rating

Lowest Price: £599.99

Olympus PEN has made a name for itself with retro-styled, easy-to-use, compact system cameras that take very high-quality pictures. The PEN Lite (E-PL5) gives you all the creativity and interchangeable lenses of an SLR camera, but with none of the hassle - and none of the bulk. And this one has the same impressive Live MOS sensor found on the O-MD along with the TruePic VI processor and fast AF.
